    "ICANN does have ultimate authority over the entire IP range."

    Not on WIFI networks.
    Not on private networks.
    Not on put-get DHT networks.
    Not on XBox Gamer networks.
    Not on PSP Networks.
    Not in conferences and sporting events.
    Not in countries with a clue.
    Not in cities with a clue.
    Not in companies with a clue.

    Yes, the legacy transport can be used when
    needed to tunnel between the above. Those
    IP addresses are benign tunnel end-points.
    Users do not see them.

    As for parents, their WIFI routers scan the .XXX name-servers and automatically filter
    the sub-nets.

    The VIXXXEN Root is Not the Consumer Root.
    Enjoy your porn and pot.

    "I've never heard of it so I assume"

    If you do not have access to .NET Engine technology that is only available to consumers with the Consumer Root, how could you know anything about it ?

    Have you considered how large a 64-bit address space is ?

    Does this exist ? IPv6-enabled Firmware Download For the Linksys WRT54G http://www.research.earthlink.net/ipv6/download/in dex.html [earthlink.net]

    If the people in BRAZIL decide to take the letters .BR. and use the 8-bit ASCII characters for "B" and "R" to create a UNIQUE 16-bit PREFIX, do you think they need ICANN's approval?

    Do they then have a UNIQUE 16-bit prefix to use with their 64-bit addresses ? Do they need an RIR to sell/lease them those addresses ?

    Does this exist?

    .BR. IPv64-enabled Firmware Download For the CISCO/Linksys WRT64G

    AH, that's right, Google shows nothing, therefore it does not exist.

    "I've never heard of it so I assume"

    Yep, your academics will tell you everything that exists, until you enter the real world.

    Does the New.Net .XXX EXIST ?

    Does the New.Net .XXX EXIST ?

    http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.txt [mvps.org] # [Vendare Group][NEW.NET][Parasite.NewDotNet][KB302463]

    What file does Microsoft use in the NEW Windows .NET Engine to filter the 32-bit .NET blocks ?

    Does the VIXXXEN Root contain .XXX ?

    Have you tried doing a dig for .XXX ?
