20 years ago, we had a global registry. At the time, the idea of having
locally tuned support (TZ, language, etc.) was considered a higher priority
than the coherency of a single GIR. But then at the time, the IANA
actually had a much more active role in administering policy for what
passed as the GIR. In the case of IPv4 and ASNs, I think a GIR would be a
very good idea. I think the RIRs still have a valuable role to play in
