this is what we used to talk about as the
"my problem is too hard even for you" poser syndrome

basically, whenever you offer a workable solution,
the poser (of the problem) changes the
problem (or the assumptions)

one of the nice things about IP (and the E2E argument(s))
is that it is really hard to change the problem it solves
in a way it still doesn't solve, whichever version you choose
(well, ok, maybe not IPv5:)
