I started that debate with Harald in 2000 at the DNSO/GA over the
understanding of "global". This mares many issues. Harald says "yes",
I say "no", but I understand the need of "yes" on occasions, when the

Why not once for all gather all the cons and pros and call for an IAB
guidance to get documented if the Internet is a directive system or
not, or can be distinctly both, at the same time, or at distinct

For example, could classes help in this case to create a real but
