There are people who go both ways on this. MCI clearly has a serious foot in 
the IRR camp, just as I do in the DNS camp. I tried to stay away from my 
opinions of the two options. I was hoping more to stimulate people to look and 
think than to debate IRR vs DNS here.

As for not trusting the IP registries, I don't see that. We have to trust the 
registries to make unique IP allocations, and since that what routes are 
talking about, it's the best place to start. Where the rest of the (which 
ASs..) data goes is not the same, and can/will be argued out. Neither existing 
proposal suggests that the routing data be in the IP registries. My point is 
if the IP regitries don't play, we loose before we start.
