Multinet does exist. It was initally (1968/1985) Tymnet before it was
strangled by the Asymetrics. It now is the internet if it is not
strangled again by the same ones. The practical strength of the
Internet over Tymnet is the datagram concept which makes
strangulation quite impossible. The disadvantage is the lack of layer
six and interpresentation system.
This why enacting MS-IG starts with working on a fully distributed
(at personal level) globalization of the root servers system. One
easily understand that fragmentation becomes quite difficult when
there is no rigisity left to fragment. Unfortunately this may make
ICE (the FBI world control on the DNS, more difficult). This hardware
level IANA globalization does not change the role of ICANN which
still has the same mission: manage the class "IN" (ICANN/NTIA) root
data. This is therefore totally conform to the Montevideo target. It
also match the primary purpose of ICANN, to foster competition in the
naming area, as other class root data public, private, or free
providers might compete with ICANN.
There should however be a need for a root data administrator enhanced
cooperation to establish ethic rules, foster R&D, propose warranties
to registrants, interface individual domain name owner organizations,
discuss with States the IPR issues, and obviously discuss the way to
mutually support the multiple identification usages and semantics of
the multiples technologies.
This is just an example of the potentialities that a real, non
status-quo hampered, MS-IG permits to project.
