I think a solution is possible.  I don't pretend to have all the answers,
and, no, I don't have the resources to be as active in IETF as I would
like to be, so, I must to some extent leave this part to others.
My management barely understands the value of my participation in ARIN.
They perceive no value whatsoever to IETF participation, unfortunately.

However, I am hoping that by having rational PI policies in place, we
can make it clear to IETF that PI will happen and that a scalable routing
solution must be discussed/developed sooner rather than later.

I have some ideas about how such a solution might be accomplished, but,
they are just ideas. I'll happily share them with anyone who wishes to
listen, and, I have shared them with several people.  However, I do not
know if that will yield any concrete results or not.

All I can do is the best I can do. The alternative is to simply give up,
which, I don't think serves the community at all.
