	There have been a number of questions that have been fielded
	wrt the EP.NET domain and traceroute failures within that
	domain.  For your edification, here is a brief note on the EP.NET
	domain.
       
	EP.NET operated as a service by the RA for exchange points around 
	the globe.  Any exchange point may become part of the EP.NET domain.
	The default assignment algorithm follows.  The next level
	identifies the specific exchange.  The next level identifies
	the attaching organization.

	So, the default for BillsBait&SushiShop (BBSS) at MAE-WEST is:

			bbss.mae-west.ep.net

	When BBSS attachs to the AADS NAP, the default name is:

			bbss.aads.ep.net

	Selection of provider specific names is encouraged.
	So when BBSS gets around to it, they may change the names to
	something like this:

		mae-west.bbss.org
		aads.bbss.org
