It might be useful for NANOG to discuss what involvement NANOG and ISPs
ought to have with these schemes.

o	Should, for example, NANOG agree that ISPs ought not provide
	secondary name service for this sort of activity?

o	Should NANOG agree that some sorts of domain name speculation are
	good grounds to terminate a customer?

o	Should NANOG decide that some other organization ought to
	address these issues?  (What ever happen to FARNET?)

	-	ISOC?
	-	IETF?
	-	The courts?
	-	The Internic?

o	Should NANOG stick to purely technical issues?
