Dear All:

The fundamental conflict which spawned this effort is the differing 
perspectives of an IXP and a network with respect to IP assignment at an 
IXP and whether or how to present or how to handle the differing data.

Is there any reason not to try to first solve that (IMHO most significant) 

If we can solve that, then we can decide on whether the ixfac/netfac issue 
is in need of solving, and if so solve it, and then go on to document at a 
level of detail to be agreed upon.
