This reinforces the position that RIPE should not give out address allocations to TLD operators to use for their anycast deployments. There is nothing special about DENIC. If AFNIC and DENIC form a consortium to operate anycast deployments for TLD operators, then that is a different question entirely. I think it would be right for RIPE to allocate addresses to such a consortium just like we now do with other network operators. --Michael Dillon
