Iwasawa developed his theory for class groups in towers of cyclotomic fields partly in analogy with Weil's theory of curves over finite fields. In this talk, we present another such conjectural analogy. It seems intertwined with Leopoldt's conjecture. This talk is related to J-P.Wintenberger's talk here earlier this year.
