... Why doesn't this group join hand to insure full exploitation of IPv6?
based on http://www.chinatechnews.com/index.php?action=show&type=news&id=1405,
i'd say that the answer to that question is implied by the following quote:
China and the United States are currently the only two countries
that possess root domain name analysis servers, IP address servers,
independent domain names, IP addresses and MAC address sources.
IPv6 is apparently being seen as just one more way in which the United States
is trying to dominate the world's commerce and communications systems. The
IPv9 team in China is able to justify continued government funding simply by
saying that "this will make China a peer of the United States".
One way of reading these tea leaves is to say that ICANN hasn't been seen as
truly open, truly inclusive, or truly independent. "Lapdog of the US-DoC"
was one critic's description. Speaking as an early adopter of Vint's and
Jon's philosophy of openness/inclusiveness/interoperability, it's really
painful to see balkanization and to consider it inevitable.
