Internic address allocation policy

Group consensus several months ago (in another discussion group,
com-priv) was that it would be a good idea for CIX and/or other
interested groups to send people to work at InterNIC just to get
the workload down and response time up, which would also facilitate
dialog with InterNIC about their CIDR block policy (hopefully).
This appears to have gone nowhere...

People have been saying this is a horrible situation for six months.
That's too long. I think that any solution which won't in and of itself
create worse long term problems is looking attractive now. I don't
see any such problems with another agency acting as a CIDR vendor
for a limited set of addresses, while we look for long term solutions.
