New allocations are (as of 1466bis) being done through providers, on CIDRized
lines. Whether IPv4 or IPv6, new allocations are not going to badly impact
the core routing table size.
Does that mean that all the internet registries no longer allocate
/24 (or longer) prefixes that have nothing to do with the actual
Internet topology (these prefixes aka "portable addresses") ? Perhaps
folks from various Internet registries would be able to answer this
I've seen no evidence that IPv6 addresses will be allocated on anything other
than CIDR lines. There are crackpots who think otherwise, but there are alwa
Current IPv6 address allocation documents *explicitly* allow for
non-provider based allocations. What makes you to think that such
allocations would *not* be used.
CIDR works as long as addresses are assigned in a topologically
significant fashion. And this precondition is crucial.
