This seems like a likely evolution. In my opinion, RIPE is the
most mature and stable regional registry.

RIPE recently combined the IP allocation and TLD businesses.

RIPE recently held a meeting in Stockholm, Sweden and the
TLDs were the hooks where people hung there hats. Not IP blocks.

The IPv8 Plan starts with a focus on TLDs and adds IP addressing.

People should keep in mind that the combining of TLDs and IP
address management is mostly a business and governance decision.
It has nothing to do with routing or technical issues. Some people
point to the efforts taken in the U.S. to mislead the U.S. Government
officials about the wisdom of separating TLD management from IP
management. That was mostly done to separate the .COM TLD
from the IPv4 address space to allow NSI to focus on .COM. It did
not address the fact that the IPv4 address space is tied to the .ARPA
TLD. As you can see in the IPv8 material, .ARPA is 0:0 and .COM
is 0:201. They are separate, but still part of the structured root.

Any questions ?
