While it is NOT my intention to perpetuate a "all those in favour - say aye" scenairo within NANOG, I would strongly submit from the perspective of a business and management consultant, that NSF NOT consider such an action. As Paul suggests, there needs to exist a stabilizing agent. Not only that, it is my understanding that NSI is in the midst of rethinking a public offering position. Any activities from the NSF corner to conclude their relationship with NSI at this juncture - could have reverberating effects within the Internet community. Variables that can extend to the community, a general course toward stabilization need to be encouraged. This to include, carrying the present agreement with NSI to its full term. All the very best, Robert Mathews ICICX. ------ - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
