Thanks for pointing me to this. The MOU seem to exclude the policy issues
relating to assignment of domain names and IP address which i think its
indirectly saying that would be ICANN's role (?)

be desired by current ICANN judging from all their recent efforts. However
what i wonder is whether those values are indeed adhered to by relevant
governmental bodies.

When i googled MDRS, the first on the list has to do with IT in planet Mars
;) so do you mind indicating the actual meaning of the acronym ;)

They have to be designed consistantly.

All this is very confuse.
> You bet it is.  What i also like to get clarification about is who/what
exactly is the process to approving a proposal such as the one presented by
Milton?. i.e is it at ICANN that such proposal is to be finally
approved?(which i doubt considering the fact that this goes beyond ICANN),
is it IETF?, is it IANA? or is it NTIA (which by my understanding happen to
actually seem to be the current ultimate determining factor).
I am looking to get an understanding of all this, so i did know that we
will indeed get somewhere after all the long talks here. We can discuss and
make out fantastic proposals, however they need to go beyond paper, they
need to be implemented.

So who has the final say on things like this?
