Ad Hoc, eDNS, AlterNIC and the bunch

I do not believe that their consent or lack thereof is an issue. NSI
is a company doing a job under contract. I do not know if they do or
do not believe otherwise, but that is not really material.

Then again, the IAHC has failed to substantiate that any of the IANA servers
will actually *implement* any of their recommendations.

I was unaware that such documentation was needed.

Really? Then why has Paul Vixie posted publically that f.root-servers.net
was paid for in whole or part by NSI?

How many others are paid for in whole or part by NSI?

Perry, you're just dead wrong here.

Of course it is. You can recommend anything you want, but if you have
nobody who will insert the pointers, its a worthless exercise in handwaving.

My son has a book by Hergé, "The Blue Lotus" that was paid for in whole
by my brother. My son now owns this book even though he did not pay for it
because it was given to him as a birthday gift. Even though he owns the
book, he will still tell people that my brother got it for him because
that's the polite thing to do.

Of course it is. You can recommend anything you want, but if you have
nobody who will insert the pointers, its a worthless exercise in handwaving.

And how is it that you became such an expert on worthless handwaving
exercises?
