RFC 2754 requested that each time IANA made an address assignment, it
was to create appropriate inetnum and as-block objects and digitally
sign them.  The purpose was to distribute the IANA-held public key in
software implementations of the Distributed Routing Policy System.
In practice, this was never done on the public Internet.  This
document requests that RFC 2754 be moved to Historic status.  This 
document is not an Internet Standards Track specification; it is
published for informational purposes.
