Those boundaries can change and people will want to continue to use their domain names. Stability of domain names is one of the arguments the ITU/ISOC/IAHC/POC/PAB/CORE use to justify their plan. How can they do that when the IANA (Jon Postel) plan for country codes does not support that ? Also, what is the purpose of having country codes if people ignore the boundaries ? @@@ http://www.zbvi.vi "ZBVI is the principal commercial and only "AM" radio station in the British Virgin Islands." @@@@@@@@@@@ Again...just so people are clear...I suggest that a TLD like .VI should cover the "region" known as the Virgin Islands and I also suggest that the stakeholders be the ones that determine the future of the TLD, not the IANA (Jon Poste). The stakeholders are the <SLD>.VI owners, in my opinion. - Jim Fleming Unir Corporation IBC, Tortola, BVI http://vi.caribnic.net -------- Logged at Sun May 3 16:44:52 MET DST 1998 ---------
