Hi All,

I was thinking that may be it is worth to (re)open the discussion about the EID block size.

Currently we are requesting a /16 and asking to reserve the /12 covering it. This was the outcome from the WG consensus, hence, it has not been changed in the document.

Yet, one of the main critics during the review was about the size of the block which seems too large.

Any thought about a change in the requested EID block size?

Should we keep it as it is?
Should we shrink it? How much?

Any feedback welcome.

see you next week in Vancouver
