Hi, I have been following RIR co-ordinated work on IP addresses distribution and especially in the IPv6 field where all RIRs have converged on a common policy which has proved to be quite fair and satisfactory. While, I completely disagree with the proposal of ITU concerning IPv6 addresses distribution and while I fully support RIRs for their technical arguments, I don't agree with your introduction which I found unfair. As a matter of fact, you say: "The ITU memorandum has proposed a new IPv6 address space distribution process, based solely on national authorities. " ^^^^^^ ==> This is incorrect! Because the ITU proposal is not _solely_ based on national authorities. I quote from ITU document in paragraph 4.2.b: " I have discussed with some industry experts my idea to reserve a block of IPv6 addresses for allocation by authorities of countries, that is, assigning a block to a country at no cost, and letting the country itself manage this kind of address in IPv6. By assigning addresses to countries, we will enable any particular user to choose their ^^^^^^ preferred source of addresses: either the country-assigned ones or the ^^^^^^^^^ ^^^^^^ ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ region/international-assigned ones. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ " So please correct your introduction, otherwise all your arguments may be dismissed because your interpretation is not totally faithful to the original proposal. Thanks for your efforts and good luck, Mohsen, IPv6 Engineer (not speaking for his company).
