No, I'm not arguing for that although I think it is a discussion very well
worth having...

Rather I am trying to find out what people think is the extent of possible
application of the MS model for policy decision making.  As I noted in my
blogpost and in several interventions on this list there seems to be
something of a sleight of hand going on, where the usefulness and
application of the MS model in quite narrow technical areas as for example
through the IETF provides a basis for applying the MS model in much broader
areas of Global (Internet) Governance. 

And I'm curious what advocates of the MS model think about that.

I commented about where some issues have been discussed or are being
discussed.  The above is about something else; it is about decision making
processes instead of where problems can be solved.

Are you arguing in the above (see quoted text) for having a Global Internet
Policy body?
