"In general, an implementation must be conservative
in its sending behavior, and liberal in its receiving behavior."
RFC 791, Jon Postel
This is more than a statement of how the IP protocol should be
implemented. It is a fundament of the cooperative philosophy that
allows the Internet to function.
Verisign as authority for the COM and NET TLDs has a unique
position that requires extremely conservative sending behavior in their
implementation. Verisign has demonstrated that it can no longer
be trusted to be conservative. We should find several independent
organizations that can.
