Dear all,

Attached is a paper prepared by InternetNZ staff  called "ICANN/IANA: Role
and Structural Considerations".

In the document we step out the various parts of the NTIA role that the
community need to build a new settlement around. We make some comments
regarding the importance of a transition to a new settlement that deals
with *all* aspects of the NTIA role - they are interlinked and only dealing
with one part creates risks to the stability of the ecosystem.

There are several diagrams attached that disaggregate the relevant DNS
functions - policy, operations, oversight and so on - and that then show
the institutional locations of those functions today.

Then further diagrams set out some options for future institutional
arrangements for these functions.

The intention is to stimulate debate and discussion about:

* what is and isn't part of the transition
* the wide range of solutions available for the institutional aspect of the
new settlement

I hope this is a constructive contribution.
