[arin-ppml] IPv6 Multihomed networks

I fully agree; there should be no differences between public and private or routed and non-routed.  

- If I were a startup initially operating single homed and then grew into a large company with true "business continuity requirements" (or became identified as "critical infrastructure" with potential legislated reliability reqs), would I then have to re-address my entire company to be dual-homed?

- Likewise if as initially planned ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization), begins operating the next generation global "air traffic control network" as an IPv6 closed network, and then years later unseen technical issues or just changes in the Internet infrastructure requires them to become routed, would you suggest that we try to then re-number their entire global IPv6 "air traffic control network" to become routable?  (Which would honestly be both politically and technically impossible once it was globally deployed!) 

One set of rules for all seems like the only way to go forward.

Take care
