Quite so: UMD: Where will the old IP route after the 6 month period is

In point of fact, ISTM that there *is no way* to make this completely safe;
granted that it's a low percentage attack, and thus probably not useful
to actual attackers, but the possibility exists that someone could hijack
that block at a provider level, and provide their own replacement for that
old server IP.

This is an extremely good point...   Where will the former addresses be
going after this?

I'm sure someone's thought about that though...I hope.
