Well, the topic of this discussion is compressed objects/items, which 
would result in more precision _and_ less bandwidth utilization.  Put 
'em _back_ in the spec.

Let's see what else: a consistent, simple PATH scheme (newN-N doesn't 
fit my definition of either) and the hardware to support it ($185 
ROM-based TNCs with less processing power than your average Happy Meal 
toy don't make for a good LAN or good use of my $$).

A real network, with a layer 3 and some intelligent network hardware.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head, but it's enough to 
start with.
