From the archives you might see that I say "who cares, it's the vendors problem". Anyway, as I said in the email after the one you replied to; I don't think there is anything special about DNS (it's just another protocol) so it would be better to discuss general PI allocations instead of specific cases of PI which is after my opinion a waste of time (but this discussion was not). >Please.

EDNS0 works, just like any other working protocol. The problem is deploying it, also just like any other protocol - like IPv6. Since there is no critical problem today with IPv4, or DNS, there will always be problems deploying the next versions of it when the first people screams "hey this is not working!!!!". We could wait for it to happen. We could use it as an excuse to find temporary workarounds. We can even make special address policies for special cases that would give us more time, but sooner or later it is going to happen - because the protocol itself is not sufficient and that is your axiom. Please do give me comments, but I think I have finished discussing this topic now. Joergen Hovland
