Okay, so you plan to use encapsulation to accomodate IP.

I still don't see the routing part, you're not using a distance-
vector (Bellman-Ford) nor a link-state (OSPF or Dijkstra) protocol
or even a hybrid (EIGRP, BGP), essentially it seems to be nothing
more than a simple broadcast which would eat up your bandwidth, not
to mention propagation delays, and what about loops?
