I never expect there to be one final addressing scheme. The Karlsruhe
scheme was intended as: We start here in Karlsruhe with something that
might work for us. If it also works for you thats fine, if not maybe you
can amend it, if it still doesn't fit, come up with something entirely
new. So far the scheme has seen some amendments and has more than 900
users who have used it. We'll see where it goes.

What exactly do you want to do that doesn't work yet?
