Apologies in advance for being a newb, but do we need to have IP
addresses supersede identities?  Could we not get both the IP address,
and the identity?  This way we can use identities for routing, if
people want to call their endpoint "cat" they can still do so and send
to that endpoint, while allowing us to get IP addresses for things
like creating a directory server, or a service discovery server.
