This is an algorithm to generate stable, private, and mostly unique
addresses. It does not affect interoperability at all if people choose a
different method. Anyone can accomplish the same task in a number of
different ways. This is just a nice method to use if someone wanted to
use it. This should just be an Informational document explaining a nice
way to generate stable, private, mostly unique addresses without all of
the MUSTs and SHOULDs, which are not interoperability requirements in the
first place. Standardizing this is silly in the extreme.
