Re: The root nameservers will be replaced August 1st

  The two perspectives I didn't bring up (hoping someone else
  would/will) are:

  o How does the NSF support/activity impact content and connections
    to the NAPs (and to a far lesser extent the MAEs, and the random
    XPs popping up everywhere [which I feel are a geat idea {but I
    won't keep rambling}]).

  o In the freedom-of-speech world, it is my understanding that
    there are significant precedents set that say once a body exhibits
    ANY editorial control, they are then responsible for all content.
    [of course, not exhibiting control doesn't insure that one isn't
    responsible].

  Of course, in a purely objective, idealistic world, I'd agree and
  support Avi's assertions.
