Um, doesn't the very fact that you are complaining that this is increasing 
costs of logging the mapping between layer 2 and 3 addresses prove the 
point that it is a privacy benefit?

I'm sorry, but most things that make it more expensive for oppressive 
regimes to track down the true source of traffic sure seem like privacy 
benefits to me.

I for one say, bring it on Apple, and the rest too.  I'd like an option to 
rotate my privacy address for every TCP session.

Yes, I'm keenly aware of the load that this puts on edge gear.  It's time 
we figured out how to deal with it.
