But, James, let not forget that Europe to function had to forge the English
word "concertation", copying on the Latin usual understanding to address
the need to independently and sovereignly work together in the same
direction; if each participant wants it. The only English word to support a
similar concept is "coordination" which implies a common authority instead
of a common servant.
1 entry found for concertation.
\Con`cer*ta"tion\, n. [L. concertatio.] Strife; contention. [Obs.] --Bailey.

This is the whole problem of ICANN. Joe Sims illustrated it well in a post
on this GA. He perfectly described what a "concertation" (European meaning)
should be among the Internance. And concluded this was "coordination", so
ICANN needed to lead it.
Another problem is that "National Sovereignty" is a descriptive concept.
Sovereignty is embodied by States. And if States were to take the first
role, relations with private sector and civil society would be complex and
lengthy to organize anew. Actually the only existing forum for that is ITU
(while the WSIS gives UN a good opportunity to promote/organize the
representation of the Civil Society). But ITU-T is certainly not a good
place for the Internet. This means that we have first to induce ITU in
planning an ITU-I to interrelate with the Internance and to have ICANN to
initiate a working group on relations with other international structures
like ITU, UN, UNECO, WTO, WIPO etc. We also have ccTLDs to better structure
themsleves, users communities governance to emerge and nomenclatures and
other name spaces authorities to federate..Then we may have a generalized
framework acceptable to everyone.
Last but not least, however Paul Twomey seems to go boldly in the proper
Legacy way (as actually did the ERC), we need to clarify if ICANN wants to
be an open network support or a Legacy system administrator, and then what
is the role of IAB and IETF in the New Networks Technologies, even if IAB
actually tells in in not really moving towards a generalized architecture
