There is only one single, known and accepted reason why ICANN would 
continue performing a good service: it is competition in an open 
market (cf. OpenStand/RFC 6852). This is the purpose of the VGNICS 
experimental project to practically foster that competition. If ICANN 
satisfies users who will use it. As Vint Cerf said once, the true 
root is the most used one. By NTIA? GSMA? ICANN? an MS process? people?
