I was not involved, but I hear that in North
America there was a
tremendous amount of layer-9 activity surrounding the creation of a
testbed registry for 1.e164.arpa -- presumably far more than would
ever be required for 4.6.e164.arpa, given that +1 includes several
countries. The testbed registry was created, at CIRA in Ottawa. As
as I know, it remains empty, some years later.
The original approval was for a temporary technical trial. I seem to
remember the delegation being removed at the end of the trial.
doesn't appear to be delegated at the moment.
The trial may have completed, but I hear the emptiness persists :-)
