Hmmm... IPv9 born again?

IPv9 is TUBA, thus the "IPv9" they are talking about is not an
"Internet Protocol" as the general population knows it.
(Yes, IPv5 is 'ST' which is why we got IPv6 now ;)

Next to that CERNET2 is running fully on IPv6, that one from the IETF ;)
See http://genkai.info/2003-1031/IPv6-development-in-China.ppt

Thus I wonder which 'journalist' wrote this one up ;)
It's July 2nd, not April 1st or is this correct on the chinese calender?

"So far, China is the only country in the world that has consolidated
domain names, IP addresses and MAC addresses into ten-digit text files."

You gotta love that one. Also... 10 digits, hmm
Population: 1,298,847,624 (July 2004 est)

They really are not talking about a protocol for the internet or
whatever else. With 10 digits they can't even give a single IP to
every person _currently_ in China....

Funny journalism, but no cigar...
