Beyond the technical issues which Steve Richardson mentioned where
your dependency on the NACRs could have been avoided - 
we've had several issues regarding the knowledge base of
those submitting NACRs.

We've provided several phone tutorials to those people submitting
NACRs on CIDR and aggregation.   Over the phone tutorials
of this material are a little difficult at best.  I even offered to
discuss this in a meeting here in Ann Arbor, but that offer
was not accepted.

Your people seem to rotate through the NACR submission process
without the benefit of training in CIDR.  I suspect their frustration
with NACRs has come in part from their lack of understanding.

In the past 5 months there have been massive changes to the NSFNET/ANSnet
and to the Internet.  These changes cause stress for us all -
but lack of training aids unnecessary burdens to us all.

Perhaps your management will help us all by giving you some
additional time to train your implementation people.   I suspect
the lack of knowledge will hurt in the RADB based world as well.
