Re[4]: [ga] RE: Re[2]: A point of agreement (Re: [ga-roots] r esponse to respo nse to response)

Hello Roeland,

To compare internal TLDs that are not made resolvable by others to
alt.roots is disingenuous, Roeland, and absolutely not relevant to the
current discussion.

ORSC would be effectively, dead, btw, Roeland. When US ISPs are not
permitted to resolve names using alternative root systems, it would be
near impossible for any alternative root to reach anything reasonable
in visibility.

Further, last time I checked, the ORSC was a Delaware Corporation.
