Slashdot: "Two IETF drafts were filed today which fire a shot across
ICANN's bows. They say that anybody who introduces a new version of an existing TLD is
destabilizing the DNS--even ICANN. These are still only drafts, mind, not standards. They
both acknowledge input from Karl Auerbach, the member of ICANN's board who was
elected by North America. The drafts are Alternative Roots and the Virtual Inclusive Root
and Root Server Definitions."
