1. On the US face:

No comment needed ....  Will Obamanet be a new Obamacare?

2. On the EU face:

Nelly (or the one who has her signature) has not yet understood the DNS :-)

Nelly for sure has not read the NTIA statement: "NTIA will not accept 
a proposal that replaces the NTIA role with a government-led or an 
inter-governmental organization solution". An EC+EU work would mean a 
government-led solution.

3. On the Multitude face:

However, we could forgive Nelly and her associates if they clarify 
what they mean by "global stakeholders" as it can be:

- either a synonym for "incumbents and TNC"s, as expressed by the 
NTIA when stating they are "committed to a transition that will allow 
the private sector to take leadership for DNS management", 
deliberately excluding the Civil Society from their project.

- or a clear designation of all the multitude of VGN managers.
