Subject: I guess you mean IANA's authorization about IOD's .web registry


IOD started its .web registry just because IANA authorized this
on July 31, 1996. This was made my Jon Postel and Bill Manning of IANA during a meeting at the IANA offices, in front of many witnesses. They gave IOD permission to start the .web registry and to collect fees for registrations, and they promises that the process would be complete in a few months. Many people at the meeting can witness this. During a lawsuit (1997) all this has been made apparent, so IANA's promise has even a *legal* validity.
