First recommendation: ditch the word "manifesto." Manifesto is loaded
with so many negative connotations that using it in a document
intended to be taken seriously by professionals is unwise...
particularly if those professionals will have to beg money from CEOs
to implement any of the proposals.

While less catchy, something along the lines of "Minimum Professional
Routing Standards for Lawfully Operated Networks" is more apt to
secure the needed cooperation, funding and vendor support.

Seriously, manifesto? What's next, some routing unabombers? Oh wait, I
guess we already have those, don't we?
