i don't agree, but the courts will decide, so we needn't argue.

i know it's hard to believe, but some people who don't want to be

what's inevitable here is companies and people rejecting connections 
whose launch points lack breadcrumbs. that will not be a world we like 
better, or that the ietf seems able to anticipate.
