Re: RFC 1466 and Cidr bloc shortage
| Is this enough such that with one or two such blocs a new registry could | be formed?? This begs the question of why a new registry would be needed. For the moment, the rs.internic.net people are doing a pretty good job of being a registry and trying to help make the Internet work in the presence of conflicting influences (the NSF, the IAB, the big carriers, the small providers, alliances among various combinations of the four of these, and so on) and goals (just doing registration itself, avoiding early exhaustion of the IPv4 address space, and working to help keep routers from keeling over with too many routes). I'm pretty happy with most of the other registries too. There is obviously room for improvement, however, I think things are trending in the right direction now in this brave new post-IETF CIDRD wg world. Sean.
