pTLA request for MICROSOFT - review closes 2 January 2002

  Imagine if Microsoft started assigning a /128 (or /120 for that matter) to
each registered copy of XP.  (A single /64 of their address space would last
a rather long time) 

  They then use this as the inner address of IPsec tunnels over which they
provide services to their XP (XP 2.0, etc..) customers. You must use this
in order to use, for instance, passport. 

  {Oh, and they permit you to populate the reverse map with your certificate
to be properly authenticated. }
