[Bing] Maybe Brian's suggestion of putting some texts into an appendix is a good way. We'll discuss this problem when make the next time update.

[Bing] Sorry for leaving it out. Will do in next update.

[Bing] We made revision focusing on explaining "what are the gaps", but the texts change was omitted, will do in next update.

[Bing] A professional language/editorial check would be helpful.

[Bing] I think it's a better description. Will update, thanks much.

[Bing] For example, if border routers enabled egress filtering based on the SIP, then the router need to know the renumbering events on some internal nodes. We'll make it clear in the next version.

[Bing] We considered the two points (ID/Locator overloading in transport layer & address caching in app layer ) are too fundamental that might not be proper to modify them just in terms of renumbering.

Best regards,
Bing
