If an IRR suffers from bit-rot, then I don't consider it to be "well-operated" and therefore it cannot be considered to be part of a well-operated network of IRRs. The point is that the tools exist. The failing is in how those tools are managed. In other words this is an operational problem on both the scale of a single IRR and on the scale of the IRR system. Is this what you mean by a "layer 8" problem? --Michael Dillon
