If I understand the slides correctly, they argue that what is missing
are network-scope (e.g., AS-scope) addresses, to be used by
hosts/routers within a domain, restricting the use (e.g.,
routing/forwarding) of Internet-scope addresses to hosts and Internet
gateways (e.g., inter-exchange routers).  Whatever the other merits of
that approach, it won't solve the multihoming scalability problem.
