    Re: Can ENUM Escape ICANN?
    by Anonymous on Monday July 16 2001, @08:51AM (#1416)
    I did a lot of research yesterday on the basis of which i conclude that vint's aversion to the move to atis is based on his hatred to atis and not likely on an attempt to shove enum into icann's hands. folk really better look at

    http://www.nominum.com/ENUM/

    which is the ad hoc state dept committee report on enum before they see too many boogeymen

    icann involvement with .arpa does not give them automatic control of enum

    tony rutkowski's effort to derail what the ietf/itu have done on enum has failed even though dave farber published a remarkable disinfomation piece of tony's to his IP list a week ago.

    verisign will not bid on enum admin

    telcordia has abandoned the verisign alliance and will be a bidder

    while i am sure there are people within ICANN who would LIKE to get their hands on enum doing so would place icann much more at risk than it can possible afford at this point. They would be going full tilt against the interests of the ITU, RIPE, and the international telco industry....

    the original IETF/ITU vision for enum that caused the fight between tony and me here late last september will win and quite frankly it deserves to win....even verisign has finally figured this one out.

    In my opinion as long as vint cerf has any association with ICANN in my opinion he is not to be trusted.

    but i think that imputing to his actions solely a desire to deliver enum to icann is not the only likely explanation for what is going on here. The ICANN crowd needs to watched 24 hours a day on this subject especially and the minute they make a wrong move they need to be clobbered. I also see no harm in letting Vint know that his actions with enum are suspect BECAUSE of his IANA hat.
