4-Byte AS Number soon to come?

The time it would take it to be deployed depends (among other
factors) on whether the IDR WG would reach a (rough) consensus on
moving forward with the existing spec, even if one may argue that
there could be a better alternative to the existing spec.

I don't think we're that short of time that any problems with
the spec should be put aside, we'll have to work with the
results for some time.


It's no good expressing these opinions here though, please give feedback on IDR.

There's been very little in the way of opinion in favour of changing the draft to avoid this peculiarity on IDR.
