With IRON/RANGER, the hybrid routing system handles network
mobility without causing a ripple effect in the BGP. Endpoint
mobility as you say is not handled by the routing system
directly, but is rather handled by an adjunct mechanism. We
have been thinking that HIP would be the natural adjunct
mechanism to not only handle host-level mobility but also
to give a true loc/ID split.
