History of IPv6 Distribution
During the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) process, the Director of the ITU-TSB published a memorandum, “ITU and Internet Governance” for public comment.
A proposal to create a new IPv6 address space distribution process, based solely on national authorities, was included in this memorandum. As this proposal could have a serious impact on Internet operators and the global Internet community, the NRO issued a response to this memorandum detailing the flaws of the proposal and the negative impact it would have on Internet operations:
