Hi, Seth:

0)    Thanks for sharing your effort. It is very prudent and not one day 
too soon.

1)    I am new to this mailing list. Our team has worked out a scheme 
called EzIP, whereby the long-reserved 240/4 netblock may be utilized to 
expand the assignable IPv4 address pool significantly by deploying an 
overlay network. So, there will be no interference between the two. EzIP 
does not need any new protocol, but just makes use of RFC791. It not 
only resolves the IPv4 depletion issue, but also mitigates the root 
cause to cyber insecurity, plus offers facilities to conduct new 
experiments. However, attempts to convey this finding to the Internet 
community met puzzling responses. We could not comprehend how the 
primarily utilized protocol in the worldwide communication 
infrastructure could be treated as past tense. It is totally irrational.

2)    This draft by your team is very important for everyone to maintain 
the Internet at its healthiest state as possible. So that we can conduct 
productive dialogs.
