Oh come on now - don't need to be so pessimistic :) If the VOIP community
feels the delegation of e164.arpa zones continues to proceed at a snail's
pace, other ad-hoc enum zones will just pop up - they already are. The
same type of political pressures and decentralization issues that forced
the creation of alternate domain registrars and TLDs are already at work.
What we could use as a temporary measure is a clearing house for all of
these ad-hoc zones - oh joy... At some point the Internet will settle on
a real operational enum root zone. If that turns out to be e164.arpa then
ok, but it really doesn't have to be does it?
