I am sorry, John, but I am interested in the IUser, user @large and 
would be user community interests. Then in their common interests 
represented by their governments. And then in their collective 
industrial interests represented by their private sector.

I would be interested in an ICANN document clearly showing these 
interests and those of the "ICANN community" and how they intersect. 
I feel that this is the main relational problem of ICANN: to show how 
it serves the civil society, private sector and Governments when 
compared to the possible alternatives, once removed the history 
hysteresis (globalization implies changes that will necessarily 
question this hysteresis).

The HomeRoot experimentation project is also to help evaluating the 
cons and the pros of a centralized coordination, a semi-distributed 
(VGNICS) and a grassroots system (HomeRoot) in terms of usage quality 
effilience, constaints, surety, security, response time, power 
supply, memory space, accuracy, costs. For example, there is no doubt 
that an HomeRoot system addresses many African, islands and nomad 
users' needs.
