RE: support for ASO initiative - Concert


All,

As (currently) Concert is a wholly owned subsidiary of BT, the view
expressed are not those of BT. 
BT has yet to form a specific position on the ASO proposal, but be assured,
it is being discussed within BT. Concert are entitled to establish their own
policies in this area.


The following are personal observations;

The RIRs must have a major input into the ASO, but, as a registrant with
entries in both ARIN and RIPE, this means I deal with 2 RIRs. There is some
way to go for harmonised operational processes and procedures between the
registries. RIRs are in an excellent position to represent many ISPs, as
usually they are local to a country or region. International ISPs may have
to deal with more than one registry, and perhaps as such should have input
into the ASO directly or via another committee/group/consortium yet to exist
that represents their interests directly.
