This is a very interesting and thought provoking thread. As we have seen in the 1Net process there is fragmentation within and across stakeholders in terms of views, interests and claimed representation. Can one say that there is a uniform IUser or @large interest that can accurately be expressed? How are those positions validated to be in the interest of the community? It sounds like we may be replacing governments and organizations as stewards with yet another representation that may or may not accurately reflect the views of the whole especially when most of the "whole" would not express needs in terms of root servers and technical parameters but rather I want access when and where I need it to accomplish varying tasks with few surprises in terms of cost or intrusion and some faith in oversight and accountability as executed by appropriate bodies.

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
