I see the scope of this experiment to create an OSI-layer 3.5 which 
inserts an identity-location abstraction between OSI-layer 3 and 4 - 
which just means it creates end-to-end connectivity using roamable 
identities. And if improving communication and boosting the economy by 
consumer roaming is a by-product, we should jump at the chance.

And experimenting with a dedicated EID-prefix will help us to find ways 
to aggregate routing(-tables) to run a infrastructure with so much 
expected endpoints smoothly.

Best regards,
