At last :-) But I am afraid this is too late because of ".us" expected
and signed agreements with au and jp which will be delaynig. Also the
differences among the ccTLDs. And basically because the ccTLDs share
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
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
then be replaced by a voted global ICANN NIC Membership equal
to all. This
Membeship will detail the committees/SOs etc.. the different groups
NIC will participate to.
This is the normal international structure system/ National structures
gather into a joint international structure of equivalent format. Each
its own budget. There is no objection to the RIPE and others to enter
an MoU over that, since it is their own structure.
