Is Wikipedia multistakeholder?  Are online fora like Reddit 
multistakeholder?  Both Wikipedia and Reddit have detailed governance 
mechanisms and structures.  But if IETF is multistakeholder, I don't see 
how Wikipedia and Reddit are any different.

Would you say ITU isn't multistakeholder?  Why not?
