There are likely several reasons....
1. They are likely too busy congratulating each other about the great jobs they did
to pay attention to the opinions from people who do not send them money.
2. The entire shape of the DNS landscape is changing with the expansion into
the 128-bit DNS services. If the Board had said no, they would have been ignored
sooner rather than later. By saying yes, with conditions, it makes them *think* they
had some impact, and the funding continues. Follow the money. Check out who pays
them to sit and watch the paint dry all day.
3. The real money is in the management of 0:0 .ARPA. With a potential 6 billion dollar
per year source of revenue from address space leasing, compared to the $50,000,000
revenue from domain name fees, the focus needs to continue to be placed on *distracting*
people from the .ARPA allocations. The entire self-manufactured "reform process" and
the emotionally charged debates generated between parties who lose when they argue,
help to distract people away from the 0:0 .ARPA management and into debates that zap
their energy and resources. Behind the scenes, the incumbents work on entrenching their
monopoly. The general public is distracted and kept in the dark.
