Are you saying that Jon Postel's decisions are supposed to over-rule countries like France ? What happens if two groups in a country claim to be the authority ? What about the ccTLDs that have no country ? Will RIPE be handling those ? What ever happened to all of those bogus statements about IP addresses and Domain Names having nothing to do with each other ? Was that just to divert the attention of the U.S. government officials ? Why doesn't RIPE just admit that they are interested in both IP addresses and TLDs ? Isn't that more honest ?
