Yes, but that was when you actually wouldn't dare get a .org for yourself unless
you really were qualified under the guidelines. Same for .net. The distinctions
have been meaningless for quite some time. They are simply placeholders.
Why does it matter if your routers and switches are in DNS as 123.company.NET vrs 123.routers.company
Im having an offline discussion with a list member and I'll ask, why does it matter if
you have a domain name if a directory can hold everything you need to know about them
via key words and ip-addrs, NAT's and all?
