<nettime> arrogance or not and a suggestion


Well, "braindead" or not, maybe there should be a central bug system for
computer related "system bugs" (Wau Holland). There are many vendors, open
source or not, IANA etc cannot do it. RFCs etc are fine, but not
everything. It may not be perfect, but like in the case of the pope, the
attitude "in the common interest" is better than nothing. And why not
create some special "authority" for such things? Chaos is nice, but
limited.
