"Another regret was the way web addresses were constructed. In retrospect it would have made more sense to start with the most general elements such as countries or organizations -- for instance using ch/cern/info instead of info.cern.ch as at present, he said. "

Of course, this was the notation used in the UK pre-IP, using NRS notation on the JANET network. But since nobody ever listens to the voice of reason from her Majesty's Kingdom :-) , we had to swap the addresses over once we were connected to DNS directly rather than going through a gateway... sigh...
