In some practical terms, perhaps, but there are extensibility schemes that allow the payload (addressing bits, in this case, to go on forever, in theoretical terms.

have variable-length addresses at all but rather fixed-length addresses with a shorthand encoding for unused bits.
For most variable-length schemes, yes, but not all. d/ -- Dave Crocker Brandenburg InternetWorking bbiw.net _______________________________________________ Ietf mailing list Ietf@xxxxxxxx https://www.ietf.org/mailman/listinfo/ietf
