	Agree with that. But as today I do not think LISP would be the solution.

	Which is good. If they cannot justify PI space may be they should not
get into the global routing table. It is a problem for them, yes. Do we
have a solution? Not yet.

	It is an operational practice. Maintaining BGP sessions have a cost.
Also, at least in the cases that I know those connections also have
different SLAs which is the real cost, not just the BGP.

	Yes, but as mentioned before the cost is in the edge, the benefit in
the core. The economic equation is all wrong. There is not economic
incentive for the edge to deploy LISP. We are facing the same problem
that we have with IPv6.

	Now, if with LISP as an edge site I can have multihome, high
availability, not to renumber my network, or any other combination of
benefits and it does cost less than PI+BGP or PA+<adyourflavorofNAThere>
then it may work.
