Re: "We have now run out of IPv4 addresses"

That’s my whole point. IPv4 is not forward compatible (it was never meant to be used long term) so any minute change to it requires to overhaul the entire installed base.

If you’re overhauling the entire installed base anyway you might as well tackle much more than just a lack of address space.
