Please note that ICANN is not entitled (by far) to cover the entire
DNS spectrum, that the DNS does not cover the entire name space, and
that the RSS is only one of the ways to convey the INTERNIC based
resolution capacity to users. For a long period of time users had the
feeling that ICANN was a necessity by scarcity. The Snowden episode
has in part freed people from this feeling. There will therefore be
most probably some innovation in the namespace servicing in the
coming months/years with wider coverages and therefore a need for
wider information than the IETF / ICANN information. Russ Housley has
proposed that RFC 2860 serves as a model for other SDOs dealing with
ICANN. This is a reasonable proposition. It should also serves as a
basis for other Referential systems supporting IETF/IANA information
and other sources.
IMHO the ICANN solution of an AoC is the correct approach for every
information repository/network information center.
