	The choice of data base technology for the shared repsoitories will
be the choice of CORE, i.e., the registrars themselves.  I believe it is a
matter strictly of operational issues, rather than policy.  I suppose one
could imagine some bizarre decision by CORE which challenges policy issues,
but I doubt it.

	Rick Wesson has organized a BOF for the Memphis IETF, to consider
requirements and technical issues, all of which are intended to jump-start
the background work for CORE.
