I think one problem is that IANA doesn't have a "brand name", so when you buy an Internet connection you aren't told you are getting an IANA DNS, that is assumed. The interesting question is whether that is sustainable if a lot of ISPs provide a non-IANA DNS service. There may be an argument for saying that "non IANA DNS" services can't be described as "Internet services", but that is an issue for ICANNs lawyers. > http://www.circleid.com/posts/techies_wanna_do_policy/ Karl was so wrong on the F root-server issue. Paul asserted no new right, most companies and organisation would act legally against impersonators of their products and services, Paul is merely asserting he believes IANA (or the ISC since it is their address space) would do the same. Let us assume, for the moment at least, that the ISC will do what Paul thinks is the correct thing to do! There is a HUGE difference between providing a modified DNS service to ones consenting clients, and subverting the Internet experience in such a way that clients find that systems clients are talking to, are fakes. > And this article shows the convenience of falling back > on standards when they serve your purpose: > > http://www.circleid.com/posts/paul_vixie_on_fort_nocs/ The only standards fallen back on, are an assertion that there are standards root server operators must adhere to, or lose their role. That is a statement of fact -- although one might argue as to whether one could effectively enforce these standards -- bringing facts, and expertise, to the debate is why you want people like Paul involved.
