That's the problem, there are things which *are* impossible in
theory. So if something is impossible in theory, there's no point in
talking about it. If it's possible in theory, the discussion should
then be cost of implementation.
Well yes, this is true; I had assumed we were speaking of things which
may be achieved by a Turing Machine.
But yes, the discussion should be about the cost of implementation. In
this case there are options which are far cheaper in terms of
interoperability, which I believe should be one of our primary 'cost'
In theory of course you can control the use of your own domain name.
If I can't control the use in practice, then what value is there in
the domain name? I've registered it and paid for it, but others are
free to use it almost any way they want, without my knowledge or
No, not in _any_ way they want. They can't publish web pages in your
domain, they can't run incoming mail servers for your domains, they
can't publish your DK/IIM/MS keys and they can't run your SES
message&address validation server.
