Okay how about a country living fine on agriculture, then discovered crude
oil; Without thinking futuristic to imagine how the wealth from crude could
transform them, they moved into oil production and soon there came a
generation that took advantage of no functional restrictions to embezzling
crude wealth thereby creating a corrupt but yet wealthy country. By that
time, All efforts to create a functional restriction were impossible
because the current generation will not allow it fly.
So it may not be an issue now, however the wealth around internet cannot be
overemphasised and an ambitious govt could maximise such an avenue with all
possible means including the control.

See my comment/analogy above

A model does not need to be broken before it is fixed, perhaps I should use
a different word; updated/reviewed

How about there is no problem, there is only a concern which should be
given attention.

Have you also wondered why it's difficult for US to release on it's grip?
And then channel it's strength towards ensuring ICANN is the one stop to
root zone authorisation. Perhaps because internet was their project...but
hey it's now a world project :)
