(the IRR as near as I can tell is > nothing but a web/whois server that you sign-up-for and push/pull data > through, right?) Indeed it is not much more than a server with a database which is why I do not consider it to be well-operated. In order to be "well-operated", somebody (or some organization) needs to take responsibility for the data in the database and make sure that this data is as accurate as can be. I'm really saying that if people want to solve this problem jointly, then the tools are already there for a membership organization to use. And such an organization could also work on a revised BGP protocol as a longer term solution. But, in the absence of such an organization we have nothing more than a disorganized chaos in which nothing much changes. --Michael Dillon
