+1 Ben! 

few of us as well have been saying this on this and others as well. Instead of spending our time trying to reinvent every wheal, we will do ourself good by focussing on how we can create (or improve) the link between global coordination/governance and local stakeholders including Policy makers and Governments in order to increase mutual trust and confidence. The future of all of this depend on our ability to calmly, candidly  and diligently address that.
