I personally think that the proposal is morphing too rapidly for the  
safety of the debate on it.
I missed the part where
the consensus swung away from PI space for IPv6 multihomers. I think  
that's needed.

I agree, a sunset clause is needed (or, at least, advisable) either way.

Would that not be a good thing ? If all this discussion did were to  
end some class of complaints,
I would feel it was worthwhile.
