"Instead of becoming the sole root zone of the internet, why not institute a set
of standards that could be adopted by entities willing to establish a modularized
root zone that could easily be added to the A root zone and other competing roots."|
So what happens when:
- Each root gives its own authority for .TLDs?
- Some joker
makes a program that AUTOMATICALLY creates every single TLD possible that doesn't
already exist somewhere, and makes them all point to his site? Wouldn't his information
be just as valid as anyone else's? That's right, kids- you mistype .com as .comm
and you get sent straight to www.bondagebabes.com ...
- Some joker has another
fun root program, distributes it virally, causing computers everywhere to distribute
the root information that www.yahoo.com's IP is really that of www.goatse.cx ? (He
can already do this to the machines infected by attacking the local DNS cache. It's
just the machines NOT infected that I'm talking about.)
- The alterna-roots ALREADY
DISAGREE in places. Who the hell is going to have control?
You're really asking
for it, and I'm sure that if Mr. Lynn had the free time, he'd be glad to give it
to you. But you're just going to have to settle for me instead.
