I am sorry but I do not understand your logic here.
1. you want to keep discussion tethered to the design of a substitute 
of an NTIA-function, i.e. a function currently carried by an national 
2. yet you do not want to discuss the possibility (or not) of a 
private funding for that today governmental function?

If Governmental functions cannot be financed by private sources, it 
means that the NTIA-function substitute,
- either cannot be financed by private sources
- or cannot include a Government stakeholder group.

If there is no Gov stakeholder gourp, it is unlikely to have an 
independent CS group being sustained. This means that the IG mostly 
resolves to the sole Private sector MS Group.
Where is the flaw in my reasoning?
