    DoC is not in love with ITU. ITU would like a new TLD for ENUM. e164.arpa is controlled by RIPE-NCC and the IAB guys. ITU and the US-based telecom and internet interessts have been fighting about this for months. Victory is (surprise!) expressing support for the U.S.-based telecom industry-IAB/Internet community root for ENUM and dashing hopes for an ITU root, as well as, of course, dashing cold water on free market advocates for competing roots.

    Those of us who are working with voice-over-IP systems (i.e. those of us who are setting up our own call setup systems, such as Cisco's Call Manager or Vocal) are probably going to continue cross-linking our dial-plans. If this trend increases then voice over IP may end up using enum directly cross-linked like the URL's of the world wide web rather than depending on some catholic, all mighty top level ENUM hierarchy, except as a last-effort fallback.

    "e164.arpa is controlled by RIPE-NCC and the IAB guys."

    yes, this is a good point of clarification. ICANN is in effect the TLD administrator for .arpa (via IANA) and has formally delegated the second level e164 to RIPE, known as "tier 0"...and this was accomplished by the IAB.

    That the ITU has wanted to move away from .arpa (and ICANN..and the USG...and the IAB...and RIPE) was not something I was familiar with. I would be curious to see where have they been "fighting" this one out. I recall that the ITU did propose to assist in administering .arpa in its comments submitted to ICANN Reform (and one of the few bullet points it zeroed in on). But, I was not aware of a formal "fight about this for months".

    Also, are you saying that US based telecom interests stand to gain by tier 0 being in the USG/ICANN controlled .arpa? I can make a few guesses why this would be true but would be interested in hearing your thoughts on this.
