People can think all sorts of things. Whether they're true or not is another matter. The facts here are the NTIA consultation is the only game in town. As you no doubt know Stephane ICANN/IANA was slapped down when it tried to do its own consultation on signing the root earlier this year. Any other forum that tried to run a consulation on this subject would either be ignored or also get put in its place by NTIA/DoC. So the choice here is stark: contribute to the NTIA exercise or shun it. > After all, why such a consultation for an international resource is > managed by one governement? Please take a discussion about the international aspects of root zone politics elsewhere. It doesn't belong in this WG. If you feel that this WG should not respond to the NTIA NoI because it "recognises" USG oversight of the root zone, that is in scope for the WG. In other words the WG can discuss whether we should respond to the NTIA consultation or not. But we shouldn't get into a discussion about the hows and whys of USG oversight of the root zone. At least, we won't have that discussion here.
