Charter for Working Group

IRE will focus on the future direction the Internet Address Registry
system should take. There will be four major goals of IRE, namely:

- creation of a document defining the Internet address registry system
goals, specifically what role(s) the Internet address registry
system should be performing, can perform, and what functions are
best performed by other bodies.

- creation of a document detailing the administrative structure of
the Internet address registry system, including chains of delegation
and appeal.

- creation of a document which can be used as a skeleton for future
Internet Address Registry policies, providing background information
to help balance the conflicting goals of allowing for growth and
avoiding routing problems.

- creation of a document providing guidelines to Internet service
providers regarding allocation and assignment policies and the
implication of registry allocation policies with respect to service
provider address assignments.

IRE, having a focus specifically on Internet addresses, is explicitly
NOT exploring, developing, and/or analyzing domain name registry
developments or evolution,

It is expected that all four objectives of the IRE working group will
result in documents which will be used in the operational functions of
the Internet Registry system.
