RE: [seul-edu] ISO eval request

I've just had a look at DETA, which deals with multisite video/whiteboard
conferencing online.

It seems to require MBONE access: are many schools that
lucky?  I'm fairly sure that I'm not.  It requires, unless I'm
mistaken, physical access to a small-ish sub network of the internet,
which costs a fair bit to set up.

I think that this idea is great, but it's going to have to work
over the vanilla net (in the UK, at least) in the foreseeable future.

So, I'd argue that it's not really relevant to the seul-edu ISO, as it
wouldn't be that useful for the large majority, if not all, of schools
because it's MBONE specific.
