Please consider my comment as excluding anything covered in 
AFPUB-2006-GEN-001 (End User).    I'll restate the issue as: one of 
the parties will have to provide the IP address space; who's IP 
address space is used is not as important as being clear about who 
will be providing the IP address space.

For the sake of clarity I prefer if this proposal does not affect the 
proposal written by Sunday Folayan and you.  I'll mention that I will 
not be the person doing an interpretation of the text if some future 
revision of this proposal is considered as acceptable.
