This was the major reason for the discussion: area code splits. If
anybody is interested,
in the hazzles involved with this, see the sections on area code splits
in the US ENUM
Forum Unified Document 6000. There also the permissive dialing period is
Permissive dialing period is the duration of time when the telephone
number under either the old area code or the new area code can be dialed
to reach the same termination. The length of permissive dialing period
is normally a few months and is set by the state Public Utility
Commission for each involved area code.
And one solution, beside duplication of all relevant zones for the
period is DNAME.
As Jim said, this is happing all over the world periodically. BTW, only
The speciality in Austria with +43 1 and +43 222 is, that we have an
dialling period with no (yet) defined end.
