2.1.  Addressing

This number is used to construct the address of a radio pager server,
which forms the recipient address for the message, e.g., either

    
pager(_at_)6(_dot_)7(_dot_)7(_dot_)8(_dot_)0(_dot_)4(_dot_)9(_dot_)5(_dot_)1(_dot_)4(_dot_)1(_dot_)tpc(_dot_)int

or

    
pager(_dot_)ATOM(_at_)6(_dot_)7(_dot_)7(_dot_)8(_dot_)0(_dot_)4(_dot_)9(_dot_)5(_dot_)1(_dot_)4(_dot_)1(_dot_)tpc(_dot_)int

        I still don't understand why this  (and like-minded
print or FAX servers)  aren't addressed according to:

                pager+4159408776(_at_)pagerserver(_dot_)tpc(_dot_)int

        or even just

                +4159408776(_at_)pagerserver(_dot_)tpc(_dot_)int

        There's certainly nothing wrong with exploiting DNS and MX
to solve this problem,  but I'd like to hear from those who have
considered the alternative(s) and prefer the above scheme (or don't).
