plans do not cause things to break, I am forwarding our reply to the
NSFNET/ANSnet Questionnaire to these lists (further discussion should
be done on bgpd at merit.edu please).

I encourage this sort of information to be made public.  I also
encourage all networks to make this sort of information public; more
than just the networks that are directly connected to the
