    Re:On U.S. Telcos and FCC Draining the IANA Swamp

    Here's the latest draft of the Internet
    regulation bill, dated November 3rd. Note that, like earlier
    versions, it subjects all ISPs and VoIP providers to intensive
    Federal regulation and requires them to register before providing
    service. It also pre-empts state and local control over rights of
    way. For the draft text, see

    Private Address Space from ARIN, etc.
    Public Address Space from the FCC and U.S. Telcos

    Many ISPs only have Private Address Space and
    that is not Guaranteed to be Routable. Ask ARIN.

    RIR's are taking heat (or some finger pointing atleast) for allocations
    that don't appear in the public route table. There are many reasons why
    the allocation might not appear in the table, I'm not convinced that
    measuring the public table is any real way to measure 'in use' status for
    ip space, though it's one gauge people seem to be using. If there is a
    legittimate need to use some ip space NOT in a public manner, one for
    which 1918 might not be appropriate, perhaps having a registration method
    'in region' (with the RIR's who already have the machinations to do ip
    number registrations and delegations) would make some sense?

    I recall, I believe, a policy proposal 1 or 2 ARIN's ago that would have
    included some form of 'private' or 'public' stamp/category on ip
    registration data? Perhaps reviving that, or making a new one, would be in

    How do the currently allocated folks feel about sending in registration
    info now? Assume no payment, or minimum payment for registration 'work'
    in included? Would we be able to get all of the relevant parties to sign
    up/register/keep-up-to-date ?

    Example registered but not 'routed':

    Would we want to change whois output to include the 'pub/priv' flag?
