Actually, there are much more relevant transitions that have already been
successfully accomplished for various portions of this space [SRI->GSI/NSI,
NSI->ARIN, DDN/ISI->ICANN, ARIN->ICANN], and yes, the Internet continued
throughout.  The fact that we can transition providers for these services
still does not mean we should do so without good cause.
