Throughout the document, when it says:

This document defines an Experimental Protocol for the 
Internet community.

It should say:

This document could have defined an Experimental Protocol 
for the Internet community. It might well have been useful 
to use floating point addresses for addressing qubits in 
a quantum computer where many small objects will occupy a 
tiny space, or with a protocol where location defines the 
dynamic address rather than the user. 

Instead of presenting a useful document it was thought that 
an April Fool's joke would be preferable. Furthermore, no 
submissions or work is to be performed on April 1st henceforth, 
lest it be confused with useful work versus a time for levity.


We don't come here for jokes or porn or to hear about your intestinal problems. We come here for facts.
While it is possible that you don't use the Internet for jokes or porn, this cannot be said for everyone. And you forgot pictures of cats.
