<p class="ecxMsoNormal"><span style="font-size:11.0pt;font-family:&quot;Calibri&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;color:#1F497D;">The “warts and all” might have been a little facetious, but at one level I think it shouldn’t be ignored.</span></p>
<p class="ecxMsoNormal"><span style="font-size:11.0pt;font-family:&quot;Calibri&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;color:#1F497D;">&nbsp;</span></p>
<p class="ecxMsoNormal"><span style="font-size:11.0pt;font-family:&quot;Calibri&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;color:#1F497D;">If you look at where a lot of this is coming from ie. pressures on IG and ICANN etc., it’s to do with the “warts” ie. the bad behaviour,
 bad actors etc.,</span></p>
<p class="ecxMsoNormal"><span style="font-size:11.0pt;font-family:&quot;Calibri&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;color:#1F497D;">It might not fit into this particular section of what we’re doing, but we shouldn’t be oblivious or ignore that there is “bad stuff”
 on the internet</span></p>
<p class="ecxMsoNormal"><span style="font-size:11.0pt;font-family:&quot;Calibri&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;color:#1F497D;">However I suspect that governments and LEA would find a fractured internet a hell of a lot harder to deal with than the current system.
 Look at the issues they have with the “dark net”</span></p>

&gt; I was going to work on this then I realised while researching something else that the work had already been done<br>
&gt; <br>
&gt; <a href="http://www.icann.org/en/about/unique-authoritative-root" target="_blank">http://www.icann.org/en/about/unique-authoritative-root</a><br>
&gt; <br>
&gt; The bit from the IAB sums it up:<br>
&gt; <br>
&gt; "Put simply, deploying multiple public DNS roots would raise a very strong possibility that users of different ISPs who click on the same link on a web page could end up at different destinations, against the will of the web page designers."<br>
&gt; <br>
&gt; <br>
&gt; To paraphrase:<br>
&gt; <br>
&gt; Single root = predictable and stable (warts and all)<br>
&gt; Multiple roots = unpredictable chaos<br>
