 ideal structure for DNSA, but in practical reality what matters is what the TLDs will accept, so no point in going into detail.

<p class="MsoNormal" style="mso-margin-top-alt:auto;mso-margin-bottom-alt:auto">Today IGP released an innovative proposal to resolve the 15-year controversy over the United States government&#8217;s special relationship to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names

<p class="MsoNormal" style="mso-margin-top-alt:auto;mso-margin-bottom-alt:auto">The proposal, which involves removing root zone management functions from ICANN and creating an independent and neutral private sector consortium to take them over, will be presented
 at the Singapore ICANN meeting March 21, and has also been submitted to the &#8220;NETMundial&#8221; Global Multistakeholder Meeting on the Future of Internet Governance in

<p class="MsoNormal" style="mso-margin-top-alt:auto;mso-margin-bottom-alt:auto">We propose four basic principles to guide the reform of the IANA functions: 1. Keep the IANA function clerical; separate it from policy; 2. Don&#8217;t internationalize political oversight:
 end it; 3. Align incentives to ensure the accuracy and security of root zone maintenance; 4. De-link globalization of the IANA function from broader ICANN policy process reforms. Even if there are quibbles about the details of the proposal, we look forward
 to gaining agreement on those principles, and are willing to entertain any proposals that embody them.
