Re: [ga] Clarification: "Ad Hoc Group"

My impression (gathered via osmosis in Santiago) was that this ad hoc group
would be looking at alternatives to the current IP addressing scheme, in
particular, addressing schemes of interest to European mobile phone
providers, which would not be managed by the Regional Registries.

I also heard ICANN was planning to create a similar ad hoc group in the
DNSO space, to look at alternatives to TLDs (RealNames, etc.)

Of course, this could all be rumor, or simple misinterpretation on my part
