Depository's business model appears to be to set themselves up as a toll 
booth on the information highway.  I agree that we don't need five RIRs, 
but the last thing we need is a freelance RIR competing with the existing 
ones, thereby ensuring that the IP registration data will be even patchier 
and less accurate than it is now.
