Finally, Chapter 9 sums up the interaction between the DNS and Internet navigation.

Throughout the chapters on the DNS and Internet navigation, the committee’s conclusions and recommendations are incorporated into the text where appropriate.

The goal of this report is to clarify the sometimes controversial, often arcane, and frequently uncertain issues concerning the signposting and navigational infrastructure of the Internet. The committee hopes that by providing such clarification, this report will itself serve as a navigational aid to the policy and technology communities as they find their way to decisions that will enable the Internet to remain an efficient and reliable channel of global communication and commerce.
