Good grief, where is this authority institutionalized? RFC 2050 describes itself as "Best Current Practice".
"Current" at that time meant 1996. Think a few things have changed since then?
As I explained in our debate in Sharm, Bill, "needs based" does not and cannot work when there is no free pool. There was no refutation of that.

Can you find that in the ICANN bylaws? The IANA contract? The international telecommunication regulations?
