youve been reading too many of NSI's press releases
The credit for the generic idea of a shared registry
probably properly belongs to CORE. It was reflected
in the original NTIA NOI released on 1 July 97 at
Question 15. See
Network Solutions in its 18 Aug 1997 initial response
to the NTIA Notice of Inquiry stated its support for
a shared registration system for COM, ORG, and NET.
This proposal was reiterated by for NSI CEO Gabe Batista at
the House Science Subcommittee hearing on 29 Sept 1997 - who
committed to move forward in that direction. This also is a
matter of public record.
Unfortunately, instead of simply allowing NSI to proceed in
implementing it, the Department instead elected to construct
an elaborate regime through a corporation DOC brought into
existence to take over the IANA functions.
Hope this clarifies the matter.
