Re: So -- what did happen to Panix?

certified validation of prefix ownership (and path, as has been
pointed out) would be great.  it's clearly a laudable goal and seemed
like the right way to go.  but right now, no one is doing it.  the
rfcs that's i've found have all expired.  and the conversation about
it has reached the point where people seem to have stopped even
disagreeing about how to do it.  in short, it's as dead as dns-sec.
so what are we do do in the meantime?

Perhaps people should stop trying to have these
operational discussions in the IETF and take the
discussions to NANOG where network operators gather.
Writing RFCs is a fine way to document operational
best practices, but it is not a good way to work out
joint operational practices. 

Of course, NANOG is no magic bullet, but it seems
like a more reasonable place to talk about how
to make things better.

A good start would be to try and get an agreed statement
of what the problem is. Once you have broad agreement on
the problem, then move on to solutions.
