IMHO, this is not the support of any list which is discussed here. 
There was for years a global 99.999 % de facto acceptance of the 
NTIA/ICANN/IANA system. On March 14th, the NTIA has demonstrated that 
this stable acceptance could/would have an end. This has changed the 
"reach of the Internet" (RFC 3935, 4.4) as a "global phenomenon" 
(i.e. an observable occurrence) by "the people interested in its 
evolution [who] are from every culture under the sun and from all 
walks of life."

There is certainly an American internet qualia that leads to what 
Michel describes. This has nothing to do with nationality, but with 
common national (difficult not to refer to nationality in a nationaly 
defined thread) multipartisan vision. It is typical that the GOP/Dems 
clash is an opposition on modalities and not on a qualia (they claim 
to share), that for example, I do not feel at all.
