The Internet needs *much* better tools than what the NSF RA project
offers today (eg the relabeled work done by Ripe) and what they have
made public about future plans.

(Next days delivery in a millisecond world is not very usefull.)

Either the Internet at large develops real tools for a "offline
registry" or we have to move this into the exterior routing protocols.
