Yes, I keep saying to Fred, that overloading SLA is a recipe for
misunderstanding.   I think Fred has fixated on those three letters though.

Bob, can you file away all the historical objections to SLA, and can we just
use another name.

Fred needs a /10 with some new name and new semantics.
     Reusing FEC0::/10 is ONE option, given that it's just sitting there rotting.
     Allocating another prefix that satisfies the needs of OMNI is another.
