RFC2827 came out in May 2000.

Based on its deployment history, where providers just have to act locally,
I suspect that a requirement that providers act globally will result in either:

a) I'll be collecting a pension and not really caring before it happens.

b) We have a curious patchwork of laws foisted upon us, from various state,
province, and country governments.

In either case, I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for something workable
to show up - that's a long time to spend being an odd shade of blue....
