Re: .COM on the move...

NSI, _as stated in their published five-year plan_, appears to be on its
way towards RFC 2050 complaince by continuing the separation of gTLDs and
the root zone.  Since J is the first letter for root-only servers, J is
apparently also being used as the first letter for gTLD-only servers (bad
choice IMHO).

Where is the confusion?  Wait, nevermind...  This is NOT an operational
problem Jim, get your DNS politics OFF nanog.
