This is a request for consideration of a technical and operations question. Although it pertains to a political topic, I am only asking for consideration of a matter that is clearly relevant to nanog.

In particular, what are the 'serious operational impacts' that could develop? There is a long-standing claim that services of the type offered by NSI are fine left without special handling (oversight, assistance). To the extent that problems to such a company can have far-reaching impact on Internet operations, it would be extremely helpful to understand them before the fact. This might permit consideration of methods to avoid such fall-out.
