Dear Mr. Ashton-Hart!

Thank you very much for this extensive "gap"analysis, but please keep us
posted on any list of DOMESTIC internet policy issues you may come across
as well. Global internet policy lives an interesting life between Los
Angeles and Geneva. After 10 year of UN involvement in the Internet sphere,
many orphans remain and happen to be very local indeed, as the many "GAPS"
of the document  "appears to indicate", without even speaking of access
pricing, last mile competition or lack thereof, monopolies, duopolies,
bottlenecks and private or public network investment so necessary to prodie
universal access.

Best regards
