I agree 100%. I use 3GPP as an example. However, it is a likely
bet that a huge fraction of the mobile devices in the future will
implement wireless connectivity specified by 3GPP and depend upon
network backhaul specified by 3GPP, so it is pretty relevant
to consider the design needs specifically of 3GPP -- if nothing
else, then at least as a reality check.

Again, agree 100%. However, we might eventually determine that the
methods for efficient use of CoA(s) are somewhat different than the
methods for enabling IP address continuity and smooth handover.
I wonder whether the two different technologies would even belong
in the same working group.
Before enabling a mechanism to select a CoA, we need some way
for classifying the "characteristics" of an IP address as bound
to a specific radio interface and Internet PoA. To me, it's not
at all obvious that such a problem is "like" the other problems
of interest within the Internet Area.
