It is amusing to note that thanks to the Montevideo statement, the existence of these meetings has now become a public information - a very-behind-close-doors-meetings!! The I-stars meetings were not publicized before the NSA scandal pressures the I-stars.

Jean-Christophe -

Your statement above is incorrect - the I* coordination meetings of the past have been
generally mundane events, but still reported by each participant as they see fit, e.g. -

6. Report from the I* Leaders Meeting

Bernard, Russ and Olaf attended a meeting of I* leadership in Miami on 29-30 November 2011. The meeting included participants from RIRs, ICANN, ISOC, and the W3C. Discussion topics included interactions with governments and the IANA RFP.

• NRO workshop in 3-8 February, Miami, Florida – Hosted by ARIN
– Concurrent with ICANN/IANA distribution of last 5 /8s
– Met with ICANN, ISOC, IAB & IETF (I*) Executives


Given the nature of the Internet, it shouldn't surprise anyone that the various Internet organizations
have to coordinate and it's often more efficient to do his together than via many one-on-one meetings.
Such coordination may not have have been "publicized" (as in press releases) but information about
their existence of such meetings of the various I* leaders was certainly in the public as noted above,
and this was well before the Montevideo Statement on the Future of Internet Cooperation.
