  ICANN joined _what_ in Montevideo?  OpenStand?  Can you provide a reference 
  to something supporting this assertion?

  Who is _everyone_ in the above remark, and again, can your provide a pointer 
  to this statement of an "economic vision of IG" that was agreed to?  The only 
  outcome that I am aware of is Montevideo Statement on the Future of Internet 
  Cooperation - is this the statement of "economic vision" that you refer to?

There is an abundance of different perspectives and interpretation of positions
(and this is a good thing since everyone has different experiences and values), 
but we should strive to be very clear and factual when describing actual events 
that have occurred.
