Right, so can you know describe how the network, hosts and applications are supposed to deal with flash renumbering?
Including servers in that network.

Specification, implementation and deployment status?

I'm drilling down on this to see if we can get a common understanding of what the IETF gaps are, and what the implementation and deployment gaps are.
(Not making any assumption that the IETF would ever recommend an ephemeral addressing model of course.)
