I don't think so, really.

This time around, the AUP will not be at the functional core of the
Internet, plus most people will be on the AUP-free side of things.


  Hi again,
    Please note that firewalls, Intranets, Market-segment
    nets (eg ANX, Inet-II, and the raft of MRNs) all are
    there -because- of AUPs. And yes it is a mess and
    it creates business opportunities and things would
    be much better if we could all get along and do things
    -my- way. :slight_smile:
    AUPs are a fact of life. We (as a community) have
    to figure out how to deal with support of thousands
    of AUPs in a global internet.

    Just my 0.02 rembi.

You mean that routing protocols need to take account of policies? :wink:

Or do you mean that BGP isn't good enough?
