Today’s presentations and statements (as far as they related to the technical side of sitefinder) fit well with what became evident at the last meeting: Verisign is trying to play nice with respect to collateral damage, they are helping people to fix what can be fixed by changing client software, but they are not moving on the wildcard itself.Two problems with that: 1. They are causing cost to others on the net by making changes at the center that have to be worked around at the edges. The side effects of the root-delegation-only BIND patch on .name are just one example. 2. Fixing the collateral damage does not give users the choices they have now (but haven’t with a wildcard).
