    .RIR SuperState Plan Leaks From the Oval Office
    by Anonymous on Tuesday May 10 2005, @08:30AM (#15167)
    .RIR has been selected as the official TLD for Regional Registries.

    The 48 States are divided into 16 SuperStates,
    which are treated like countries, with their own
    elected officials, capitals, navies and economies.

    Each of the SuperStates has their own initial
    IP allocation to get them started.

    224/8 Sep 81 IANA - Multicast - .DE.MD.VA.
    225/8 Sep 81 IANA - Multicast
    226/8 Sep 81 IANA - Multicast
    227/8 Sep 81 IANA - Multicast
    228/8 Sep 81 IANA - Multicast
    229/8 Sep 81 IANA - Multicast
    230/8 Sep 81 IANA - Multicast - .FL.GA.AL.
    231/8 Sep 81 IANA - Multicast
    232/8 Sep 81 IANA - Multicast
    233/8 Sep 81 IANA - Multicast
    234/8 Sep 81 IANA - Multicast - .WI.IL.MI.
    235/8 Sep 81 IANA - Multicast
    236/8 Sep 81 IANA - Multicast
    237/8 Sep 81 IANA - Multicast
    238/8 Sep 81 IANA - Multicast
    239/8 Sep 81 IANA - Multicast - .NV.AZ.CA.

    The multicast code-bloat has of course been
    removed from the operating system software.

    Less is more. Less States, more Countries.

    Tieing a protocol to trigger based on address space prefixes is a major architectural wart that is best removed.

    What a mess the IANA left behind.

    "RIRs policies...become more unfair and draconian"
    by Anonymous on Wednesday May 11 2005, @04:27AM (#15173)
    From the ARIN Board

    "RIRs policies...become more unfair and draconian"

    http://www.arin.net/mailing_lists/ppml/3657.html [arin.net]

    > IPv4 will run out of space > before most people are ready to move, if for no other reason than > they are > being lulled into a state of unconsciousness by those who refuse to > accept > that change is inevitable. I doubt IPv4 will ever run out. As the unallocated pool of IPv4 becomes smaller and, as a result, RIRs policies and procedures become even more unfair and draconian, people will either (a) migrate to IPv6, (b) NAT themselves so they only use a couple IP addresses, or (c) obtain the addresses they need from the black/gray market. Assuming the market will be allowed to exist (and I'd argue it will whether or not the RIRs accept the fact), I suspect a combination of (b) and (c) will satisfy the needs of most folks unable/unwilling/ unmotivated to do (a). Speaking only for myself of course, but the way things are going, in the end I'm afraid Paul Francis's NUTSS (Nats, Uris, Tunnels, Sip, and Stun) "architecture" will win out. I personally would prefer a world in which there was a clear and obvious reason to migrate to end- to-end IPv6, e.g., deployable multi-homing and/or trivial renumbering, instead of FUD with questionable basis. However, to date, I haven't see that reason.
