Internic address allocation policy

Which NIC are you talking about?
The InterNIC has three different faces. One is run by ATT, one by
General Atomics and one by Network Solutions. Are you abusing the use of
NIC to mean the registration function by Network Solutions?

Don't forget the RIPE NCC and APNIC are also NICs that have the authority
to issue addresses as well.

I am sure the network solutions part is the one being discussed. The
general atomics part of the NIC is gone, by the way, stan. NSF shut it
down...essentially for non performance.
