I was asked to post this by my management:

We at Secure64 are surprised and somewhat confused to learn that both 
our company’s name and the title of our recent eSeminar have been used 
as a point of contention in the dialog between Dr. Fisher and the DNS 
Operations group. Our seminar has absolutely nothing to do with either 
the DNS World conference, or with the discussions taking place on this 
mailing list, and we have no idea why we were even mentioned here.
