My two cents in this discussion. Daniel Karrenberg and Yakov are
drafting such an RFC. The implications are the bits that need to be
well documented. The matter is not as simple as "not connecting to the
Internet", because one should realize that one also cannot connect to
another organisation doing the same thing with the same number. It
basically assumes "no connectivity" to any other organisation ....

Daniel will be at the regional techs next week, I think those involved
and interested should take things up with him.
