John,

Congratulations to you and ICANN for this significant step, at all the 
various layers and meanings of significant. :)

Relevant to another post today, I've noticed that neither the 
*.ip6-servers.arpa nor the *.in-addr-servers.arpa allow axfr. Which 
leads to the following questions:

1. Was that a conscious decision, and if so why?
2. Is there any hope that axfr could be permitted in the future?

Of course, if you're not the right person to ask feel free to redirect me.


Best regards,

Doug

The IN-ADDR.ARPA zone is also in the process of being moved from twelve root servers to dedicated nameservers operated by the five Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) and one operated by ICANN.
