I'm sorry, Alexander, but it does have everything to do with DNSO matters. IP
addressing is what domains map to. If the cost of IP allocations is going to
effect domain name holders and users, it is pertinent to the DNSO. If the
RIRs are going to charge emormous fees that will trickle down to users, that
is pertinent. If the reason is to support ICANN, users need to know why they
would support ICANN if ICANN does not support them and is disenfranchising
them. Domain name matters include the fact that domains map to IP addresses
and it is increasingly more difficult to obtain IP addresses. IPV6 presents
problems for users, both in security and cost. Issues no longer have totally
separate boundaries and ICANN would like nothing better than to keep the
users unaware of the pitfalls of IP addressing issues coming under the
control of ICANN. As a matter of fact, IP addressing and allocations are
probably more important to users than the domain names mapped to them at this
point in the discussion, but the issues are joined at the hip.
