Finally some sensible discussion about the end-game that does
not cause us to reach a crisis sooner, and may extend the overall
life of IPv4 by a small amount. It also removes the incentives
for companies to create shell companies in other regions to lock
up a supply of IPv4 addresses.

We should discard all the other silly end-game proposals and do
some serious work on making a workable variation of this one.
