    Vixie Declares War on Advancing DNS Technology
    by Anonymous on Saturday November 19 2005, @05:38PM (#16521)
    "we are at war, and we should win"

    Yep, the ISOC and ICANN way, win the war, who
    cares about consumers, ISPs, etc. Win at any
    cost. The process is the product, there are no
    real products or services. War is big business.

    i was considering making a process objection to the advancement of AAAA, but
    even though the process has been flawed, the results we'll get by advancing
    AAAA aren't worse than the ones we'd get by backtracking and then following
    the process.

    i refer specifically to the abandonment of A6.  the decision to abandon A6 was
    made in a smoke filled room and then presented to the community as the new
    default unless sufficient cause was shown to reinstate the previous default
    (A6).  lacking such sufficient cause, A6 was abandoned.

    the results have been catastrophic, and will only get worse as IPv6 is further
    deployed.  we had one shining chance to use DNS as an identity and IPv6
    addresses as locators, and that's been lost.  most enterprise IPv6 deployment
    will be behind NAT, for the resulting economic reasons.  the routing table will
    be every bit as pressured in an IPv6 world as it has been in an IPv4 world, or
    likely, far more pressured.

    but, even though our reasons for going to war were either outright lies or
    based on faulty intelligence or "sexed up" by interested politicians or even
    "not voted down" by folks who were afraid to be seen as "outside of the
    consensus position", the fact remains that we are at war, and we should win
    rather than lose or draw.

    AAAA will be a black mark on this working group's historical record.  advance
    it please.
