Consumers want to multihome.
That sentence needs profound expansion before it's going to be
reasonable to assess any proposed solution.
(Why do they want to multi-home? What do they hope to achieve?
Redundancy? Load sharing? What trade-offs are reasonable, e.g. with
respect to the stability of individual sessions across re-homing
events? In a transaction carried between two hosts, do clients and
servers have different requirements?)
We tried to catch a reasonable number of motivations in RFC 3582, but
I bet we missed plenty.
