% Bill - as I said in a previous posting - it would be quite fine

% but just because you might want to do that shoudl not (imo) keep the
% IETF from posting the 40,000 or so IDs from others, most of whom I
% expect would not object
but retro-actively changing the term of a contract,
esp when no such escape clause was in effect at the
time the contract was in force, is fraught w/ potential
not saying it could not happen, just that not all that
sure of the value proposition of this particular line
item makes it worthwhile going after the collective
at this time.
it would be worth some cycles to modify the BP used
to indicate, for the general case, that ISOC or its duly
authorized agents(blablabla) reserves the right to maintain
any ID published with this clause intact in the ISOC archives.
as usual, ymmv.
Opinions expressed may not even be mine by the time you read them, and
