But IANA is not the keeper of the root zone, Simon. The USG is. They
specifically delegated to IANA the ability to manage the ccTLD delegations, but
new gTLDs were specifically outside of their scope.
IANA can recommend you send new top level domain applications to Bill Gates, for
all it would be worth. They have no validity.
It is not an official process, because it had no sanction from the only
authority who could make it official. The US Govt.
I've said this over and over again to you, and you still can't provide any
evidence that shows that the USG gave IANA the authority to delegate new gTLDs
without its prior approval. When you can point me to specific
official document that says that, then we can reexamine this. Until then you
keep answering with the same old tired arguments that are clearly flawed, and I
keep pointing out why they are flawed.
The circle is broken, Simon. The IANA did not have this authority. Ask Sexton
for some clarification, he had an interesting exchange with Jon Postel's
brother on a usenet newsgroup about this very subject recently.
