Some of us are looking at a different model. I’d be interested in your thoughts.

The premise in this is that a great deal of the complexity in OpenStack is 
basically working around the deficiencies of IPv4, especially its address space 
and issues in multicast deployment. IPv6 actually addresses a lot of that. So I 
would posit that we can use a label to isolate tenants, use IPv6 Multicast for 
the cases in which IPv4 and Ethernet use broadcast, and wind up with some much 
simpler and more scalable.
