Silly. We already *do have two namespaces*. One is EIDs in form
of FQDNs. They are portable. Another is IPv4 addresses which aren't.
A FQDN is NOT useable as an EID. The host is not the endpoint.
Sorry, nobody managed to make any reasonable case pro magic-cookie EIDs
as yet. The best rationale i've heard was from Noel who said that
his "architect's sense" tells him so. Funny thing, a surgeon i know
was at loss when i asked him about this function of organism, should be
a new discovery in medicine.
Consider process migration.
