While I understand the history of the 2 letter TLDs, I am not sure that you can enforce anything beyond what will become common in the generic TLDs. Also, in the end the Root Name Server Cluster operators make the decision and they may not know who has the endorsement of the government and who does not. Would you be in favor of requiring that some "official" statement/letter/etc. from a real government official be scanned and placed on the web site ? - Jim Fleming Unir Corporation IBC, Tortola, BVI http://www.nic.vi -------- Logged at Tue Apr 28 00:56:10 MET DST 1998 ---------
