[discuss] ICANN proposal for NTIA transition published

It's because ICANN believes ICANN should keep the IANA function, and because ICANN wants to keep the IANA function, by any means necessary.

There are certainly proposals to take IANA out of ICANN.  I'm not sure what the "customers" of IANA think of these proposals or keeping IANA ICANN.

Is that because it's *already assumed* that ICANN will be operating IANA at the end of all this, or because the search to find a suitable community-based organisation to operate IANA will only begin *after* the transition process itself has been agreed?
