Sure, let's start with explicit queries, as you suggest. I think we'll soon need a convention for resolving domains into ITADs as well.
Two advantages of the hashing approach I suggested are:
1) It makes the long term direction clearer, since, in a very explicit way, ISNs become numeric aliases for email addresses.
2) Once you've cached the domain-to-ITAD mapping and prefix, you can derive ISNs from email addresses offline.
However, a huge disadvantage of the approach I suggested is the need for a widespread local numbering convention.

This would be an HTML directory, organized in whatever manner the ITAD
Let's add another URL to the administrators' pages, and call it
It would be a cgi, accepting either post or get, and would be able to
search by a standard set of fields. For example, if I put the following
url into my admin page as the directorysearch URL: cgi.covert.org/itad-288
Then searches could be done as follows:
and so on. We just need to define a standard set of search keys.
The directory.<itad>.info.freenum.org page might have a window that
provides an interface to the directorysearch.<itad>.info.freenum.org
page (or any other search mechanism), but if the directorysearch URL
is provided, it would behave according to our standards.
