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.
