60% - invalid or missing contact information
a - How about a policy that says if nobody can contact you
and none of your addresses are reachable, then after some period, your
addresses get recycled.
b - How about a policy which says that if you fail to pay an annual amount
by a due date then a process is commenced with an outcome such that
your registration details expire and the associated number space is no
longer registered to you.
And comment on b
Would this process, perhaps, be associated with a route announcement
My response is no, the two are not logically associated. My response
is that one way to reverse the roles and place the responsibility on
the entity to reestablish contact regularly with the registry rather
than have the registry valiantly try to contact the entity is to
introduce payments with a default action of lapse of
registration. This is an potential administrative action associated
with the objective of ensuring the integrity and usefulness of the
single address pool which constitutes the IP playground.
Route charing schemes are a different beast - they are one possible
measure which could be introduced by Internet operators intended to
place pressure on the operational environment and direct this pressure
toward achieving a routeable Internet by offering financial
inducements to measures which decrease the number of discretely routed
components of the address space.
