Hi Randy,

Just to clarify. I am not complaining we cannot assign the unique integers,
but the integers require additional planning, and that from operational
perspective causes inconvenience. Following the experience in ipv4 enabled
network would be a natural thought, especially when you want the IDs to be
helpful in troubleshooting rather than just pure numbers.

Peng
