[ppml] geo addressing

What about sites that expand outside the aggregate, want to remain
within their own aggregate for administrative purposes, but, also
want local connectivity in their various offices around the world?

Imagine, for example, that a company in the US, within an ARIN
aggregate starts expanding internationally into Asia, Europe,
Africa, and Latin America.  Imagine that such company feels that
their existing /32 is adequate, but, they want to be able to
announce it (or a fraction of it) from their sites on each
continent directly.

The reality is that geo. addressing only works if the world
stands still.  The world does not stand still, so, geo.
addressing trends towards entropy.
