Milton, McTim and all,

I agree that the NIR scheme has some disadvantages.  the 
major one is complexiety.  An NIR need to deploy a similar 
mechanism of an Internet Registry including the registry 
system and policy development process, which should be 
synchronized to RIR's one.  Someone possibly might feel not 

However, NIRs are working very well to serve non English 
speaking community to deliver IP resources and include it 
into the global policy scheme, which should justify an
additional cost for the complexiety as shown above.

The NIR scheme is not phasing out, APNIC does accept 
applications of forming an NIR.

Just for making sure.

Akinori - JPNIC and APNIC EC, but in my personal capacity
