ICANN was mandated to coordinate this process, however it should not solely do this within it's structure. So while ICANN discuss this issues within it's community events (since ICANN community can be seen as a stakeholder) it should organise physical meeting(1 or 2) on a neutral ground where all stakeholders (including outside ICANN) come in to discuss their views and that is where an outcome should be determined.

Or, it seems obvious, take advantage of other existing meetings where other such stakeholders are likely to be found, including the IGF, the WSIS+10 high level meeting, the World Social Forum, the Chaos Communication Congress...

Otherwise I agree with Seun and Ian.
