I don't think Milton mean the way as you suggested.

The USG oversight of root zone has been a long standing "problem"
(politically) and that release of control is long overdue, been extended
again and again, as it has been suggested that there is no mechanism for

So Milton proposal is the one of the more reasonable ones I seen that
explain the problem clearly with a guidance of the principles of how such
control can be safely transferred to another organisation that continues
with the stability and continuity of the Internet.

Hence, I agree and support the structure and the principles as described by
Milton's paper.

If this proposal is adopted, I don't think anyone here including Milton is
naive to think it will be adopted wholesale. I believe politically for USG
to relinquish its control is that it is somehow still involved in the
oversight. But if USG is involved, then we get another big elephant in the
room "Which other government should be involved?"

In anycase, it is a start, however slim chance I think it would be adopted
in its existing form.
