I only refer to Michel Gauthier's evaluation of the ICANN BoD (in 
annex). ICANN joined with OpenStand people as per the BoD strategy of 
coalition to start an effort to form an Internet cooperation.

Every signatoree and endorser of OpenStand. RFC 6852 describe an 
"economic vision of IG in order to define the technology development 
paradigm" which calls for:
1. Cooperation between standards organizations,
2. Adherence to principles of Due process, Broad consensus, 
Transparency, Balance, Openness,
3. Collective empowerment based on technical merit, to provide global 
interoperability, scalability, stability, and resiliency; enable 
global competition; serve as building blocks for further innovation; 
and contribute to the creation of global communities, benefiting humanity.
4. Availability.  Standards specifications are made accessible to all 
for implementation and deployment (FRAND).
5. Voluntary adoption.  Standards are voluntarily adopted and success 
is determined by the market.
