I don't see how domestic market (mis)regulation can be a matter of 
Internet governance as:

   (i)  It is a matter for the relevant country to decide.

   (ii) The issue also covers non-Internet areas.

It would be problematic to try and fix such problems through Internet 
governance (see Brian's comment about national economic policies).
