[ipv6hackers] opportunistic encryption in IPv6

I read this again and I apologize for missing the bus.  So the basic idea is how to provide scalable confidentiality to prevent passive eavesdropping.  Going back to the roots of IPv6 - the end to end principal, wouldn't it make more sense to just do OE at the endpoint?  That seems to have the highest chance of adoption.  If Owen and I want to do OE we just enable it on our Linux hosts and away we go.  Do you think there is interest/demand for an OE gateway solution as described in the paper?
