UK Numbering Activation via Yahoo?

We have recently been assigned a number range by Ofcom and part of the process of setting this up involves activating the number range across all communication providers in the UK.

I was amazed to discover that this process is all driven by a Yahoo Group.

I guess in the same way that businesses have come to rely on free telephony through Skype, it makes sense for Ofcom to use a free service if it proves robust enough. Indeed, if you consider the timescales that the various providers work, carrier pigeon would probably work just as well.
