NAIPR Message

US CODE: Title 15, Chapter 1, Section 2.

Mr. Berkowitz,

You and others seem to confuse the terms  hierarchical, aggregation, 
clustering, and classless interdomain routing.  However, I
do not mind stating the obvious for you, my friend, if it
helps:

---------------------------------------------------------------
Classless interdomain routing is a subset of clustering techniques
called aggregation.  Aggregation techniques are subsets of 
clustering techniques which are subsets of building a hierarchy.

Classless interdomain routing is not the only method to build
a hierarchy routing structure.  It is one possible technique
out of a large set of solutions.  However, it does happen
to be on of the more anti-competitive paradigms, as currently
implemened with provider based aggregation.        
---------------------------------------------------------------

Back to the 'other issue':

If the issue is routing, and NAIRP is 'charging' (registering)
to use or advertise IP routing, then I think NAIPR should
say so, publically.  However, publically at least, Ms. Hubbard's
position appear to be that the charges (fees) are for running
a registry only.

It is difficult to react to a moving target.  Registry Fees ...
Fees to Control the Size of Routing Tables .... Registry Fees ... 
Routing Issues ... Resource Requirements to Run a Registry...

which one is it, Ms. Hubbard?  Mr. Postal?  Mr. Bradner?

It appears that one thing is certain, there will be millions
of dollars under NAIPR to pay the salaries of those whom
created the organization and moved to collect fees.  On the
surface, it appears the issues are more deep than antitrust.
Creating an organization, implying businesses and individuals 
cannot use the Internet if they do not 'join and pay fees' and 
will not have global access goes beyond anti-competitiveness. 

Questions:

Does one purchase 'protection' to insure IP address space
will be routed?    If an organization does not pay NAIPR
will Mr. Postal (IANA) provide address space?  Will NAIPR
members routin non-NAIPR members globally?

This is the paradigm it appears is being tacitly created.
Ms. Hubbard, with all due respects, proposed the current
paradigm years ago and now puts herself in a salaried
position to manage affairs.  Is this ethical?  

These 'self appointed' NAIPR administers will be paid large
salaries and given a 'position' for creating this organization,
which, in my opinion, may be viewed as cyberspace spin of 
the old 'pyramid scheme'.
