The wheels are turning?

Part of the reason this thread continues to spiral around the plughole is that I don't believe anybody has taken the time to ask that question and others like it of non-technical policy people in a form they could understand.

I think a survey of existing mechanisms which could provide equivalence-type functionality (e.g. for registry operators and for end users) together with a clear description of the pros and cons of each would be really quite useful to guide policymakers. While we're at it, a clear indication that we might need to wait decades before certain classes of solution are ready to use might also come in handy (e.g. approaches that require changes to resolver behaviour). You never know, the result might be policy that is actually implementable.

I have a suspicion that to date the policy that is driving the noise we are hearing assumes that the technical problem space is unconstrained, which I think we believe (if we speak with one voice about anything) not to be true.


My current, personal thinking is along the lines Joe Abley posted
up-thread. We need to get a complete picture of all the things that
can in fact be done right now, and all the things that people want to
be able to do, as near as we can put that together; we combine with
those a list of all the known side-effects of these strategies. We
point the people who we think have issues here, and try to find out
whether they understand the message.

Only after that work is showing some effects do we undertake changes
to the protocol.

Does that approach make sense?
