Assuming that ITU is trying to obtain a status similar to that of other RIR's and is not trying to replace ICANN/IANA (it's not exactly clear to me what exactly they are striving for), heaving read and agreeing to all the previous that has being said: <devil's advocate> What would be wrong with allocating the ITU their own /12 (whatever) and let them distribute this among their members. Yes, they will become a worldwide super-RIR, but as long as the other RIR's are not interfered with? As an telco/isp I would have the choice of option: request my IPv6 space from RIPE or from the ITU. As long as they don't interfere with ICANN/IANA or the RIR's, what 'danger' would ITU impose? There is no need for 500 domain registrars and still we have lots of options to choose from. Competition is not a bad thing. </devil's advocate> -- Met vriendelijke groet / Kind Regards, Worldmax Operations B.V.
