The issues are those of involvement and communication. IETF is closed and tight-knit. Yet, they do not and cannot recommend TLDs to the DOC. Evenso, they come up with stuff that the folks that ARE supposed to recommend these these things, aren't made aware of. Countervailing recommendations are made, from those that ARE supposed to make them, and we then have a cat-fight. > and that they have exclusive understanding of the > ramifications of controlling this space. That's a fairly deep mud-hole. Let's not go there ;) > See RFC 2606 Thanks for the RFC. It will be taken into consideration.
