Re: Routing wars pending?

    From: Alan Hannan <alan@gi.net>

    What are the correlations and contrasts between our current
    backbone routing problems (wrt space and # of routes) and the FCC
    decision several years ago to make 1-800 numbers portable.
  
Well, the 800 number problem was a little easier, since phone numbers are
variable length, and the 800 number database maps the numbers into another
phone number, which may be a 13-digit carrier-id+phone-number combo...

    They say get stuffed, and get a congress person to propose a bill that all
    IP numbers are portable. This bill passes. It could happen. Any thoughts?

Exactly which court do they go to to get this enforced on non-US parts of the
Internet?
