[Cerowrt-devel] Fwd: [homenet] Border Router Discovery Protocol

some activity on a needed standardization front...

I would like to come up with ways, with ipv4, that will prevent
double-or-worse nat from happening when multiple routers are plugged
into together. With ipv6, to come up with good ways of distributing
uniquely delegated ipv6 subnets out of an ISP's assigned prefixes.

I have read the BRDP framework document, but I failed to understand
how BRDP solves the problem of how a border is discovered.
it explains well how to act when a border has been established, but I
don't understand how BRDP helps getting to that point. pointers?
