Definitely yes! But as George Sadowsky said earlier there will be life on
1Net after IANA is globalized. Let review his email, there are more others
meaningful issues to be addressed...
I would like to take this occasion to thank all elders who have been taking
their time to discuss and explain topics on this list. The discussion is
very informational and useful for the young people and Next Generation
Internet Leaders.
Thank you all very much.
Best regards,
Victor Ndonnang.

WASHINGTON – To support and enhance the multistakeholder model of Internet
policymaking and governance, the U.S. Commerce Department’s National
Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) today announces its
intent to transition key Internet domain name functions to the global
multistakeholder community.  As the first step, NTIA is asking the Internet
Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to convene global
stakeholders to develop a proposal to transition the current role played by
NTIA in the coordination of the Internet’s domain name system (DNS). 

NTIA’s responsibility includes the procedural role of administering changes
to the authoritative root zone file – the database containing the lists of
names and addresses of all top-level domains – as well as serving as the
historic steward of the DNS.  NTIA currently contracts with ICANN to carry
out the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) functions and has a
Cooperative Agreement with Verisign under which it performs related root
zone management functions.  Transitioning NTIA out of its role marks the
final phase of the privatization of the DNS as outlined by the U.S.
Government in 1997.

Neca eos omnes.  Deus suos agnoscet.
