You appear to be putting the burden of work on me to figure out what
you could be saying, as opposed to trying to say it.  I'm sorry, but I
won't do your work for you.  You offered the document from the IETF
Trust and then made a claim that it was somehow relevant to the IANA
function.  I asked you to show me how.  I don't think I'm being
unreasonable in that request, so if you can't actually offer that
evidence I can't take seriously that there is relevance of the Trust
provisions for the IANA function.

It is to my great chargrin, actually, that I continue to hold US
citizenship; but also, I'm loathe to make generalizations across
categories like "non-Americans", which strikes me as being one so
broad as to be not very meaningful.
