This looks tidy and perhaps also well written (makes the entire DNS
business looks simpler than we thought ;) ). However i have few things i
like to ask and hopefully get clarification on;
1. Under what law will the DNS Authority" (DNSA) be established. OR better
put in which country will the not-for-profit be registered?
2. Considering the registry to 1vote model of operating the DNSA, how does
that factor out for regions that seem currently underprivileged with
3. From the new structure does it mean DNSA has no right to reject any
change request forwarded to it (so long as it is from(or adheres to) the
ICANN PDP) and also has no right to make any changes that does not
originate OR meet the ICANN PDP requirement?
4. What is the internal structure of the DNSA going to look like i.e is
DNSA going to ask registries to contribute expertise to manage the root
maintenance OR they ask another entity to do that and provide oversight
Thanks for sharing the document.
