There is a government at the national level.  There are existing 
structures to tackle specific issues, e.g. competition, and regulate 
the market.  There are also existing structures to discuss about 
trade treaties.  Making some problems Internet governance issues does 
not help to fix them.  If I am not mistaken one of the points Brian 
was trying to explain was: does the issue belong here?
