At last :-) But I am afraid this is too late because of ".us" expected size 
and signed agreements with au and jp which will be delaynig. Also the 
differences among the ccTLDs. And basically because the ccTLDs share the 
IANA functions with the gTLDs, the DoC havnig no particular priviledege 
except running its own root server system. IANA (once restored) should 
serve as a source of master root file for every global root server system.

The only way is to have the ccTLD Managers participaing to their National 
Internet Conference boards (NIC). These NIC will  gather national@large 
[for legtimacy, dynamism and innovation], consumer organizations, ISPs, 
content providers, user association, GAC representative, etc..

The NIC will form an ICANN constituency-orgnization-SO [as you may like] 
and will work at being acknowldged as the ICANN/GA. The ICANN contract will 
then be replaced by a voted global ICANN  NIC Membership equal to all. This 
Membeship will detail the committees/SOs etc.. the different groups of a 
NIC will participate to.

This is the normal international structure system/ National structures 
gather into a joint international structure of equivalent format. Each with 
its own budget. There is no objection to the RIPE and others to enter into 
an MoU over that, since it is their own structure.
