Yes there is. It is "NewCo" or "Entity". Had you been at Reston or paying
to the recent postings on the various lists, you would know this. I am being
blunt here becouse I am finding it difficult to believe that you haven't been
paying attention, or you don't give a dam. In either case, shame on you! >;)

game. It is so easy to see through it isn't even funny. Jon Postel has no
of getting directly involved. He and others within the IANA and the ISOC would
rather stay aloof as much as possible and just make broad sweeping announcements.

Or keep form making broad avoidance to specific questions and making broad
sweeping announcements that are way behind the pace of discussions.
