Thanks for your comment..

Would you agree if the NSF gave the money to three
colleges or universities ?

Each would handle a different aspect of the InterNIC "task"...

	IS - Information Services
	DS - Data Base Services
	RS - Registration Services

If not universities, how about letting companies send
proposals to the NSF ? A lottery could be used. A company
could propose to handle only one of the above.

By having three companies, this helps ensure stability
and prevents a disaster in case a company fails.

These comments can be related to ARIN because there
does not seem to be much concern about failing. What
would happen to ARIN's customers ?
