I share Tim's concern that we need to explore the extent of IETF consensus on this proposal. 

In particular there are not many m/c /8 left so we need to make sure the allocation is well used.

One limitation of the proposed method is that a small organization has an extremely limited number of m/c addresses that that can create by this mechanism. Did the WG consider, for example, the creation of a registry of organizations that wanted m/c addresses but which did not have a 16bit AS number, since this would have allowed greater flexibility in the number of m/c addresses an organization could own?


Also I had to stare at this figure 

   Bits:  |  8  | Unicast Prefix Length | 24 - Unicast Prefix Length |
          +-----+-----------------------+----------------------------+
   Value: | TBD | Unicast Prefix        | Group ID                   |
          +-----+-----------------------+----------------------------+

for a while before I understood it and wonder if there is a better way to show this.

  Please consider the Gen-ART Review by Francis Dupont on 2010-05-12:

The draft seems to imply that an organization must choose between these allocation methods.  
I don’t see why that is the case.  Is there any reason that an AS can’t take advantage of both 
GLOP and the mechanism specified in this I-D?  The idea that these mechanisms are 
complementary is no where to be found.
