ENUM in Financial Times Deutschland 

The Financial Times Deutschland (FTD) had an article yesterday on ENUM - Magic Phonebook - (sorry, german only).

Of course an article in FT is important for ENUM and at least the first use case is a valid one - namely linking VoIP islands (companies) together. But as already the title suggests, the other use case leadsimmediately to the privacy problem.

As second use case a follow-me service is described, which would be nice if implemented with SIP forwarding and presence, but NOT in ENUM.

ENUM is not a real-time forwarding service and it is also not a presence service.
