This would probably be fixable if all DIDs from ULCs were delegated out
of larger blocks that fall on decimal boundaries, which would be
analogous to an opaque BGP announcement of a shorter prefix by an
But, because many numbers are ported in, this would be akin to
announcing lots of /32s and, as you mentioned, without the critical
component of physical connections constraining the routing topology.
Any such scheme would have to incorporate the notion of a reseller chain
into its mechanics and a security model that allows downstream resellers
to modify the physical parameters of their receipt of the call but not
the fundamental routing chain.
