On 21 October 2004, the Director of ITU TSB published a memorandum, “ITU and Internet Governance” for public comment. The Number Resource Organization (NRO) respectfully offers this public response on behalf of the Regional Internet Registries: APNIC, ARIN, LACNIC and RIPE NCC.

The IPv6 address space distribution proposal in the ITU memorandum overlooks the success of the RIRs in including public and private sector considerations in open regional policy development processes. It also disregards the widely accepted and long-held views that IP addresses are endpoint network identifiers that intrinsically have no national attributes, and that allocation principles regarding their distribution must be guided primarily by technical considerations relating to the viability of the operation of the Internet.

The complete NRO document is available at the NRO site, with a summary at the same site.
