No, but it needs to be governed.

The problem is that we confuse four planes that make every 
stewardhsip (in our case the networked stewardship of a network of 
networks, on top of which everyone build its own virtual networks).

- administration, i.e. the language, tools, methods, etc. (adminance)
- short term operationality:  technics best practices, rules, and 
contacts (operance)
- mid term management: technology, standards, laws, and international 
agreements (governance)
- long term constructs: science, norms, treaties, architectural 
agreements (concordance)

For example: MSism is a method to commonly prepare individual decisions.

Demanding more to a plane or a method than its purpose is the surest 
path from confusion to broader confusion.
