I'm aware of the fact that there might be access and/or security related issues requiring a solution, but we might be able to solve that as soon as we know what to look for.... Org.: Where is this to go? LIR or DB? Preferences? ( In general I prefer a path where the goals and application requirements emerge from an "application WG" and the implementation is then passed on to the DB-WG. ) Wilfried.
