There is, however, a need to avoid resurrecting the same issue over and over;
Tero gave three URLs in the WG list archives that point back to the same topic
(as Hugo raised it, first URL below). Given the lack of much discussion, Russ'
comments (see second URL below, copied from Tero's message), and Ted and
Barbara's decision (third URL) two months ago, it would seem to me that the
issue is closed. I personally agree that active identity protection is
important, but I think this discussion is going around in circles.

I also like Tero's suggestion --- it's not perfect, but it's good enough for
most purposes, and it won't block the IKEv2 document from moving forward.
