This paper is available from ftp.csd.uwo.ca [129.100.11.252] in the pub/x.500
directory.  It's called ISINM93-paper.ps.Z.

Is there anything wrong with global machine names (for the purpose of storing
them in the Directory) such as
	{Country=ca, O=UWO, OU=CSD, Domain=Syslab, Machine=rubble} ?

Am I missing something?
