  This is not an answer to Jims statement.  It is mearly an opinion.  And only
one persons opinion at that.

  How do you suggest that a "Consensus" be reached?  Doesn't this statement
somewhat contradict you previous statement "We have a stable and reliable DNS,

  This is good.  And most likely as it should be.  But if you say that "any
change from the
current system is likely to be for the worse", than why is this list even

  To be sure this is true!  You are certainly no exception.  But there are those

on this list that would make good candidates.
