> Speaking strictly for myself, I’m not sure why homenet is relevant. The technology is related to networks that have different routing depend on on one’s use case. A class of solutions for it has been called the “fish” problem, and built using multi-topology routing. In homenet, it’s called SADR, and is primarily about egress routing (routing to an egress to an upstream ISP that gave you a PA prefix). While one doesn’t really want to confuse theory with practice, in theory it could be used between points of a network, to prevent folks using one set of prefixes to talk with another set, or to force routing of some sessions in some ways.

why homenet is relevant?
isn't multi-prefix multi-homing one of the most obvious use cases for source address dependent routing? that's not restricted with homenets, but also any small network. I'm assuming large networks will continue with PI addresses and BGP based multihoming.
