I live in the US; I drive on the right.  If I want to drive on the left,
I'll move to England or Australia.  And presumably, as long as no one is
drinking and everyone is driving carefully, there would be no collisions.
The conclusion therefore is yes, I can decide for myself whether I want to
drive on the right or the left, and do it safely; it just means my choice
may have me moving to another country.

Hmmmmm...ICANN root country or one of the alternative root countries?
Perhaps a little marketing push might help me decide?  Till then, I think
I'll just stay where I am.  ;-)
