This is not true, we have been moving forward for more than 15 years and

I don't know if I'll characterize the position of the countries that didn't
sign the final acts of WCIT 2012 as "healthy" but for sure the other 89 are
still in the previous century.

Absolutely because it is a model that is still evolving and with many
issues to solve.

Some people seem to have some concerns about the existing structures, and I
hardly believe that extending ICANN's reach will be a formula for success.

But I agree, NGO's can play an important role to drive the local dialog
with government.
