RE: Re: [wg-c] Recap from past threads...
As I said, there is MUCH work to do before multi-part roots are viable,
technically. I mentioned it as an example. As far as alternative roots
are concerned, I don't think we differ much there either. Only in where
we place the threshold. Also the fact that I don't believe in bluffing
or making threats (one and the same). If I create a root-registry, it'll
be for real intent to operate, not as a political ploy, or I wont
bother. Yes, I am seriously considering the option, with DNSO.NET.
