In a number of jurisdictions and particularly in the EU, IP addresses
themselves (any version) are considered Personally Identifiable
Information (PII) and are expected/required to be protected as such.
This implies that Firewall and Intrusion Detection logs must not be
conveyed across country borders, e.g. from Germany.
Any attempt to introduce another flavour of PII into a transport
mechanism (as distinct from an intended payload) is likely only to meet
significant (and warranted) resistance at every level, carrier and
legislative overseer alike,
