RE: Affects of the balkanization of mail blacklisting
APNIC, ARIN, and RIPE are now *the* members of the Address Supporting Organization (ASO) of the ICANN. Just as, IETF is now a part of the Protocol Supporting Organization (PSO). This could turn into a globally over-arching problem. MAPs has a large user base that is international in scope. It also appears to be cross-domain (addresses AND names). However, it would appear to be a largely ASO issue, since it directly effects IP address block policies (YMMV). If one wants to make MAPS-like functionality a part of the Internet, at large, then that's where one might go. Clarify your thoughts, write them into a proposal and bring it to either the IETF, the ASO, or both. Understand that much of the process is still being defined and there is a serious lack of participation from those that should participate. But, it may still be your best approach. I work in the ICANN/DNSO and have no serious connections in the ICANN/ASO and only slight contact in the ICANN/PSO. > From: email@example.com [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] > Sent: Monday, August 13, 2001 2:37 AM > > In article <email@example.com>, > Margie <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > >MAPS as a corporation must have revenue to operate. > > Has MAPS ever talked to organisations like RIPE and ARIN? > Most providers > are a paying member of those anyway.
