How would you deal with the desire of a number of 
governments/organizations to internationalize rather than globalize 
Internet Governance without the controls that NTIA has placed on the 
transition?  Seems to me that the sense of the list for a solution was 
what they have offered...  You may consider this poker (or perhaps 
bridge in light of trump cards..), but an immediate turnover to an as of 
yet un-created/identified entity in a vacuum of process would have been 
Russian Roulette with live rounds.  I'd prefer to see how the hand plays
