Re: [ga] Letter from ICANN to New.net

A telling presumption exhibited here: if the "protocol community"
doesn't like something, ICANN should dump it.  However, the
Internet does not exist for the benefit of the "protocol community"
or ICANN; those two entities exist for the benefit of Internet
users.  It is those users who have the right and obligation to decide
what kind of Internet that will be, the single, "authoritative" (I just
love that audacious presumption!) root or multiple roots.

And most of my questions were not answered at all.
