Addressing Support Organization (ASO)

I assume the letter below may be interesting in this context:

Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) 
Ms Esther Dyson
Interim Chair of the Initial Board
339 La Cuesta Drive 
Portola Valley, CA 94028 

Dear Ms Dyson,						February 5th 1999

I am writing to you on behalf of the boards of the three current
Regional Internet Address Registries: APNIC, ARIN and RIPE NCC.  
These three organisations are currently preparing a request for the
recognition of the Address Supporting Organisation (ASO) mentioned in
the ICANN bylaws.  We expect to submit this request to ICANN in time for
your Berlin board meeting. 

In order to meet the requirement in your announcement of a demonstration
of widespread support our proposal will need to be reviewed by the
membership of the existing registries, the groups currently preparing
the establishment of new Regional Internet Registries as well as the
Internet community at large. 

We are currently planning to publish a proposed structure in early March
after discussions at APRICOT.  We expect that our memberships and the
community at large will support such a proposal. 

Should you have any questions regarding this, or should you like to
raise any issues about this with us, please do not hesitate to contact

Kind Regards

Toru Takahashi
Executive Council of APNIC

John Curran 
Chairman of the Board
American Registry For Internet Numbers

Keith Mitchell
Chairman of the Board

for the boards of APNIC, ARIN and the RIPE NCC
