I was not referring to a vote on WLS. I was referring to a vote on the
REPORT of the Transfers Taskforce within the DNSO, which was taken at the
Bucharest meeting in Romania,
24 June 2002. The report had a series of recommendations.
Please note also that views have shifted progressively since the issue was
first discussed, where WLS was originally being positioned as a solution to
add storms following dumps of deleted names. It was subsequently reposition
by Verisign as a separate service, and the existing solution of using
separate pools of connections will remain to manage add storms.
