This would be much easier if we had a bottom-up
hierarchical addressing structure rather than the
current top-down one.

I quite agree with that (though i'm not convinced that "bottom->top"
allocation combined with recursive NATting is the best architecture).

However, this does not preclude doing authentication with the current
routing system.
