	BBN is confused.

	They should change it to a moniker that is acceptable to the customer.
        ^^^^^                                      ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

	If ianet.net is taken by someone other than the customer,
	they have an obligation (sorry, not RFC mandated) to represent
	it correctly.

	I could go on, but why. BBN still thinks they invented tcp/ip.

	Ehud
