I found an archive of NAMEDROPPERS going back to 1983.  If you are
interested in the subject, or just want to know how we got here, its
an interesting read.

Anonymous FTP at ftp://ops.ietf.org/lists/ in  1983, 1984, etc.

If you don't know the past, you are doomed to repeat it.  Even though
I disagree with some of them, I understand some of the decisions a
bit better.
