   I think if the IPSRA WG states that IP address assignment will only
   be done with DHCP, using the method described in
   draft-ietf-ipsec-dhcp-06.txt, I would agree with you.  However, if
   you try to use local IP address pools and something like IKECFG to
   hand out IP address to the clients, then I would argue that you need

How IP address assignment is done is a matter of the IPSRA working group
to decide; however, the use of "hacks to IKE", such as those proposed by
IKECFG were explicitly ruled out of scope according to the IPSRA
charter, which was approved by the IESG (who insisted on that

The idea here is that we need to simplify and fix IKE, and we can't do
that if people want to keep wanting to add hacks to it.
