As an individual registrant, I don't need to know about (although I may be
interested in) all the ins and outs of how a particular ccTLD is structured.
What I do need to know is that I have a forum to air grievances against both
my ccTLD and my gTLD registries, in the form of an ombudsman. If that is to
be an internal procedure of each country, so be it, but that still leaves
gTLD registrant issues within ICANN.

A ccSO effectively puts all country specific issues offtopic for DNSO, so
the IDNHC proposal must now be reviewed in the light of this development.
What are the alternatives ?
