Hi Paul,

The friendly folks over on the rrg at psg.com list have made several
specific proposals for disentangling PI space from BGP including LISP,
Ivip, eFIT-APT and my own entry TRRP. They change how PI is routed but
they don't change its function. I can't speak for the others, but mine
lays out an incremental implementation plan which doesn't require
everyone to jump on board all at once and where the folks involved
experience a direct benefit from each step:

Proposals and visions for the future are on the table. Its just a
question of picking one and seeing it through.
