I appreciate the suggestion. But the subject was introduced on this  
list. And much as I try, I cannot understand why adding IPv6 will make  
much difference to the existing 3,000 records in the root zone. And  
given the fact that we're talking about address space and not name  
space, delegation may mean there is increased load down the tree. But  
not much at the top, which is where Lutz is pointing (the "Root").

enjoy your weekend as well :-)
