  No but there is implied pressure, that should not exist, on ISP's and
IAP's that is significant enough to dissuade them from doing so.  In addition

with the updates (Upgrades) In Bind 8.2 it is possible for them to do
so, however as I have experienced IP blocking can make that potential
moot, al la the IANA/ICANN and the ITU's use of www.orbs.org for instance.

  Agreed.  But it must be seriously discussed, which given the particular
bent of the ICANN and now the NC/PNC (Legitimate?), this is not likely.
