my read is that Jorge Amodio is making an important point - no matter
whether there be a legal mandate or constraints, positions within the US
like "they will only take the Internet away if it is from my cold dead
fingers" impose a severe constraint on steps toward the different possible
scenarios of internationalization, and they need to be taken into account
in any (re-) design even if they are not being expressed in this
constrained environment.

Further to that read, i will add the view that many interrnationalization
approaches will not be viable if people within the US do not begin to
support them. This means to lobby, picket or whatever is the appropriate
practice, before the government's executive and legislative branches, not
the always close-to-hand ICANN pignata. That would show some real decision
to effect change; beating ICANN yet again is improductive if you don't do
the other side as well.

Scenarios for this happening or not are determinant in delimimting the
solution space for George's Problem 1 however we finesse its formulation.
ARIN, BTW, would be a very credible leader if it chose that course of
action and is not otherwise.
