	The simplest solution to this is to allow each registry to set 
its policies as far as whose allocations is will accept. Those registries 
that can solve these regional problems will get the most business.

	I'm sure that if, for example, an explosion shut APNIC down, RIPE 
and InterNIC would start allocating to those who normally deal with APNIC 
until APNIC could resume operations.

	Regional registries are a management convenience, not a network
convenience. One registry per backbone would be a network convenience. <G>
