An even playing field where those who can only get a few class C addresses
are not excluded from multiple peering points. I think that this is fairer
So far, we have two unilateral decisions by those powerful enough to
make it stick. InterNIC protects address space, and Sprint (and others)
protect router memory.
Isn't there a way, if the InterNIC and the larger backbone operators
cooperated, that organizations having smaller armounts of address space
would not be filtered out?
Or is it technically impossible?
