Hi Nick,

>> Thanks to you and Nick for the update on RIPE. I'm pretty sure ARIN (where almost all of my effort is concentrated nowadays) has a different policy, but that's not central to my argument.
> Should have been more clear here. There was never a requirement for multihoming for ipv4. There was for ipv6 but it was removed recently. It's never been clear to me why there is a divergence in policy between 4/6, but there is. 

The divergence started because the address policy working group wanted to keep the IPv6 routing table clean and aggregated. Then real life started interfering ;-)
