Since there are more than 4 billion devices now (and either ipv6 or NAT is needed), the answer "What is achieved by introducing IP addresses? + Uniquely identify each host on the internet" is - no longer - correct

again I don't fully agree: If you are using NAT your computer is not a host on the internet your gateway is a host on the internet and it is uniquely identified. Your computer as well as others on your network are all seen by the internet as your gateway. So I would say it depends on how you define "to be on the Internet". for the ipv6 part I fully agree so would it be helpful to speak about the ipv4 Internet? --Renepick (discusscontribs) 14:06, 25 October 2013 (UTC)

Minor: I changed "+ This is done to clear the path for IP routing." into "+ This is done to clarify the path for IP routing." - though I am still not happy with the wording --SteffenStaab (discusscontribs) 12:25, 25 October 2013 (UTC)
