Other questions will have to be answered by people in the community. Many people do register in the IRR. Those that don't, won't for a variety of reasons. For some, there is an unwillingness to trust a thirdparty operator coupled with no desire to run a portion of the registry in-house. When these two conditions are found in a large-scale provider, the concept and implementation of the Internet RR are frustrated to the extent that the non-participating provider becomes increasingly unreachable/understandable. They are relegated to peridoc public postings to mailing lists for definitions of their routing policies. I expect that the example set by other large-scale providers would be an incentive. Running a section of the IRR inhouse shows a spirit of cooperation and a desire to share in the global internet. Refusal to do so appears, at least to me, to be an arrogant, egotistical view about any specific providers importance to a working global internet. --bill
