I have been thinking along similar lines to use the map as way of getting
folk to register (and hopefully keep current) their RIPE-NCC IPv6 db info.
This would also be a good time to add back at least the "Routing Prefix"
for each site and possibly the "Ping Address". Gee, if I got
sophisticated, I could maybe have a click sensitive map that allowed you to
click on the net and go directly to the RIPE-NCC IPv6 db entry.
Rather than shoot for 1 October I would like to shoot for 1 Nov or 1 Dec
for practical reasons.
How do others on the list feel about this??
