[Asterisk-Users] ENUM when your country's ITU representative is uncooperative

I thought it would be neat to put my SIP/IAX reachable systems into
the ENUM system.

But reading about it I see that its rather centrally controlled within
the ITU.

My country code (+27) is not delegated.  My country has a monopoly
telco whose only interest in VOIP is to keep it all to themselves and
not permit any other usage.

So - what to do?  If I approach the administrators for e164.arpa
(e164-contacts at ripe.net, apparently) will they delegate 7.2.e164.arpa
to me?

I guess that they won't.  (It would be fun if they
would, for some definition of fun (I once administered .mu 
and the Mauritius telco thought THEY should administer it)).

Considering that they probably won't delegate, how about Asterisk
supporting a second parallel ENUM tree under a domain that we can
control ourselves?

Thanks for any comments,
Steve Davies
