This is not the reading of L. Strickling who considers that the wold
is "split" on the issue. And explains that we have 5 years and half
to address the issue. It means that he does not see this as a local
partisan issue. Things are definitly more complex and complicate than
discussed on this mailing list. This is probably why he has
delegated the burden to act as a discussion front-end to ICANN and a
IMHO up to 5 1/2 years gives the USG time enough to see if ICANN
survives the concept of change and how. IMHO, the world will decide
on real and demonstrated proposition alternatives. The test is to see
if the edge providers ally into some ICANN alternative or not, how
the civil society behaves, what ISOC actually proposes. ICANN might
be the ultilmate winner, but it is for now in competition and show
that it is the best in being able to fairly document its possible
alternatives or complements.
Not an easy task.
