The protocols require that there be only one root:
Methinks ICANN quite obviously have no right to claim they are living
up to their obligations to manage that root in a "open and transparent"
manner. Karl's suit is the most blatant example.
I'd argue that they are failing on other criteria too. Eliminating
publicly elected directors from a "public interest" corporation,
amd generally operating more as a club for various special interests
than in the the public interest.
Overall, I'd question ICANN's right to suggest -- let alone insist --
that they have done a competent job to date, or that they should be
trusted to manage the root in future.

There is only one Internet.

You support this?

That does not follow.

That doesn't work, at least not with standard NAT. The could use all of
10.0.0.0/8 in China without problems, but not 0.0.0.0/0.

It looks purely imaginary to me. Can you point to docs on the NAT
that you believe will make this work?
