[ppml] Question?

It seems to me Jeffrey poses an important question to which regional
registries might eventually be part of at least some partial answer, but
only a part.

Groups such as the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), Internet
Engineering Steering Group (IESG), Internet Architecture Board (IAB),
Internet Assigned Number Authority (IANA) and the Internet Research Task
Force (IRTF), and its Steering Group(IRSG) would all seem to have essential
roles. Along with other permutations and combinations of the alphabet.


As to actual policing, I would be prejudiced in favor of leaving that to the
police with due process in the court system based on laws passed by
legislators even though that has proven a right messy system.

This contribution from the nearly half-vast wisdom of George Cottay.
