However, we do have to live =together= and it doesn't seem 
the IETF understands what's necessary for that.

Unfortunately IETF seems so "weldfremd" that it has only 
hardened old messages instead of looking for alternatives 
and keep more or less in touch with the rest of the world.

IETF could =at least= advise something like "make a law 
that forbids the use of wrong return addresses in IP 
packets. Or do an open proposal to the router industry to 
filter all packets with wrong return addresses out.

The proposed no-saying is useless. With or without nice
