For some reason, I can't see CNN broadcasting "Come visit our website, at

that IPv6 will make that even uglier.
The only real solutiuon to the present and future DNS woes is to replace
it with the hyperlinks, portals, address books and search engines - and
_no_ human-readable names. This effectively creates as many "roots" as
there are users. My "John Doe" is not the same as your "John Doe" :)
I *like* DNS. Abolishing it would be akin to, say, removing the UNIX path
environment variable and all aliasing/symlinking support from the kernel.
