I am still trying to figure out how or why the EFF was listed as a signer.
It's true that a couple of us did have a long conversation with Jon Postel
about the issues and the IAHC's efforts, but we were searching for the
facts. We have yet to make a public statement as to whether or not we're
going to sign, as, with most quickly pushed through policy, it does have
it's flaws. You'll know if and when the EFF is going to get behind this
when *we* issue a press release.
