Good point there, Owen.
We need to appreciate the fact that the world is moving from the 
physical to the
virtual and logical, which aids mobility and ubiquity without necessarily
sacrificing flexibility. This aids the global village concept and any attempt
to tie what is virtual to anything physical defeats the very purpose of the
internet, and makes its administration unnecessarily difficult.
