what ever are you smoking?

we have pretty good policies where folk who actually need internet
address space get it according to their needs.  having four wheeled
vehicles that go between places is currently not in the set of
methods used to justify those needs.  if you think that trucking
should be part of the ipv6 address architecture, then the ivtf
would be a great place to discuss that, as ops clue and simplicity
would get in the way.
