Jon's original note is insufficient to assert that it was anything other
than at a test.
The subsequent analyses cited are the _opinions_ of others. While
everyone is entitled to his opinion, those who actually spoke to Jon got
quite a different story.
Gordon Cook I understand can attest to this. He trolls here from time to
time. He overheard Postels end of the conversation. This of course is
well know internet history.
It's as well known that Gore invented the Internet. While opinions often
drive what people call history, they do not drive what is known as fact.
Gordon Cook also has reported on it - see his home page -
Ira Magaziner released his Green Paper in the midst of what Jon
Postel called a test of the ability of root servers to point elsewhere
than NSI. Critics called Postel's "test" a hi-jacking
Again, "what critics call". Your assertion that this was hijacking isn't
substantiated by the facts; the facts only indicate that it was the
opinion of a subset of critics.
