    HEATH: I agree with Steve. I have many people come to my office lobbying. The telecommunications minister of China, for instance, was saying that there are hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of IP addresses out there that have not been charged for. They're grandfathered; they're not allocated, and they're not used. She said, "We don't want them to necessarily be given back, but if they're going to use them, they should bear the rules like everybody else. The new rules are you pay for them." So it's not exactly clear.

    BLOKZIJL: You don't pay for IP addresses.

    POSTEL: Technically, that's not a correct statement, but just go on with...

    HEATH: She said that people are now paying for IP addresses.

    POSTEL: People pay for services. They pay to be members of the registries.

    BLOKZIJL: You don't pay for addresses.

    HEATH: I guess her point is there are a lot of them out there that haven't been used and they didn't really have to pay for them.

    POSTEL: People who had addresses previously and have not had to give them back, they're grandfathered.

    HEATH: There is an issue.

    BLOKZIJL: It isn't an issue.

    HEATH: Well, it is for the people who think it is. My real point was that on the DNS thing, Rob [Blokzijl] was saying it's time for the DNS people to get together. Well, of course that is happening and maybe, by way of prediction, I would say that it will be resolved, though you're not going to have this unanimity or consensus that's solid. There will be factions that break off and splinter off and are going to complain forever.

    New people are going to come in and say, "I'm sorry, what are you doing? I don't know anything about this and I have an opinion."
