You do not have to demand the government, they will be demanding you.

It has always been a non-issue, used by the Registries to spread FUD.

Whitehouse Ready to Release Next Generation Internet Plan

Gore Deserves Internet Credit, Some Say
David J. Farber, a professor of computer science at the University of Pennsylvania and one of the early players in the Internet,
said that along with the importance of his legislative initiatives, Gore popularized the emerging medium worldwide. Gore aligned
himself with high tech long before every lawmaker boasted of his or her personal Web site. He helped popularize the term
"information superhighway," drawing on the symbolism of his father's hand in creating the interstate highway system.

Vinton G. Cerf, a senior vice president at MCI Worldcom and the person most often called "the father of the Internet" for his part
in designing the network's common computer language, said in an e-mail interview yesterday, "I think it is very fair to say that the
Internet would not be where it is in the United States without the strong support given to it and related research areas by the vice
president in his current role and in his earlier role as senator."
