But this group is explicitly barred from considering the question of who 
decides what domain names to allocate.

The IETF is not part of the ICANN structure, any more than the ITU or 
Time-Warner-AOL is. If there are domain name allocation issues to be 
considered (and I think there are), then ICANN has to work them out.
However, it might be nice to wait a bit before starting, in order for some 
of the tech stuff to get shaken down a bit.
