Let's imagine that someone defines a way to encrypt MPLS
traffic. At that point ought one recommend that the
encoding of the IP addresses into the opaque value ought
also be secure as otherwise that encoding might help an
attacker to decide which nodes to attack when or what
traffic to attack how. I guess this is not really caused by
this wildcard handling at all so I'm not asking that
anything be fixed here. But it might be good to look at
this cross-layer leakage issue when/if we do start working
on MPLS confidentiality.
