Hi,

An interesting draft on an important topic, but I think it oversimplifies the problem in (at least) two ways:

1. Even if we had new improved switches and hosts, they would for many years be mixed with unimproved switches and hosts on the old (emulated yellow cable) model. It's already bad enough when you mix switches that do MLD with dumb switches that really do only emulate yellow cable.

2. I think we should be expect mesh rather than hub and spoke in the quite near future.

Which all takes us back to homenet, doesn't it?

Regards
   Brian
