One of the stated uses of .INT is for international databases and that seems to be the reason that the reverse DNS for IPv6 is under .INT rather than .ARPA. Of course it may not be too late for IPv6 to be changes and for all important infrastructure info to be moved to .ARPA. We could even rationalize things somewhat, i.e. IN-ADDR.ARPA IP6.ARPA NET.ARPA for IP netblock whois info ARIN.NET.ARPA | RIPE.NET.ARPA |-queries to NET.ARPA will be redirected to one of these APNIC.NET.ARPA | RS.ARPA - route servers IANA.ARPA - IANA databases such as MIBs, port assignments -- Michael Dillon - Internet & ISP Consulting http://www.memra.com - E-mail: [email protected]
