    1818politically and technically, centralization has serious problems.  It is vulnerable to severe failure modes, for example, where a centralized resource (like a nameserver) fails, impeding the work of every device dependent on it.  Centralized authorities are also subject to compromise, which can cascade into a compromise of all the dependent nodes.

    2222Having centralized, static authorities in a network pushes the network towards stasis and penalizes dynamic nodes.  The difficulty of finding services offered from a dynamic node relegates these nodes to consumers of network services, instead of providers.  It would be nice to encourage every node in the network to participate as a peer, both providing and consuming services.
