Opinions of recent ITU Comments on the Management of IP Addresses
With all the recent discussion on IPv6 and the allocation thereof, I havent noticed any discussion of the Director of ITU-TSB's memorandum, "ITU and Internet Governance"
To quote an email from the MD of RIPE to a large number of ripe mailing lists "This memorandum includes a proposal to create a new IPv6 address space distribution process, based solely on national authorities. This could have a serious impact on RIPE NCC Members, Internet operators and the global Internet community at large"
The original ITU memorandum is available at:
Its not an idea that fills me with joy, but I'd be iterested to hear the opinions of this mailing list
 This email included the phrase "We urge our members and others in the Internet community to make their views about this issue known." so if anyone wants to read it who hasnt I can forward a copy.
