Sprint's route filters and Europe

I don't disagree with either of the above. I was not arguing against regional
registries, just that the problem is more widely known and understood than
in just the internet industry. There has been the potential for problems (viz.
the subject line) but AFAIK they've mostly been sorted by harmonizing
the differences. Where this hasn't happened yet (one area I have direct
experience of is namespace - .co.uk vs. .com for example), it has
started to distort the 'market'.
