DNS controls which users get AAAA records and which
get A records. That then determines
how the addressing
is formulated. People with native IPv6 systems only care
AAAA records (setting the A6 aside for the moment).
From what I can tell, the .WEB
servers operated by IOD
can not talk to native IPv6 systems. That will open up
opportunity for any company to serve that market.
Contrary to your incorrect claim
of it being an all
or nothing market, it is an incremental market.
If this were
the car market where your roots are, this
would be like saying 18 wheelers have
been added to the
road. You are making the claim that developing and
to the 18 wheeler market can not happen unless
it is also offered to the car owner
market. There are
many examples where this is not the case.
Now, one could argue
what percentage of the road will be
trucks and what percent will be cars at some
You are of course free (as you have done) to decide, using
example, to only market .WEB to car owners. Since it
now takes very little to
also market to the truck owners
it seems odd that one would not do that, when
such a small user group, compared to .BIZ which will be
all markets. Maybe that is why .BIZ is in the
legacy roots and .WEB is not ?
