IPv7 is CLNP on the 'internetworking' layer, no magic, and it still
have some of the old source/dest limitation's, even thus it might do
some good. (Personally I think we need another kind of toy here)

Cider, is something we need today, and put's limitations on the
topology if we want it to make the big routing table savings we baadly
need, NOW!

There is somthing more, routing of troble-tickets, with todays
international cooperation among all the actors (maybe not EMPB) we can
receive a user complain't and get it resolved , even if it crosses
*MANY* operators/networks.

Not mentioning those who have 'fake' roots that sometimes 
poisions the whole system for others. 

This is actually a crusial point, the DNS system is based on
countrycodes and it should be made avaliable for all networking 
organisations in that country, and it has to be fully interconnected.
