I would not get overly concerned.
To put the problem space into context, how much of the +64 number
range can be reached using SIP, or any other URI that you might want
to publish under 4.6.e164.arpa?
I ask because it seems to me that the only plausible way that enum
will be used is as part of a bottom-up process, through individual
subscribers who want to make themselves reachable in ways other than
through their telco.
However, so long as telcos maintain effective control over the E.164
number plan and have no commercial reason to modify their existing
interconnect tariffs (or to allow their subscribers to be called in
ways that don't use their network) it seems clear that such a thing
will never happen.
Am I missing something, or is enum a nice technical solution which
can, almost by definition, never be deployed?
