Whether WIPO intends so or not is perfectly irrelevant. I would like pointing
out that the recommendations specifically state tha t ICANN should establish
an acreitation process for DRP Service providers.

It might well turn out that in the very short run only WIPO would meet the
criteria or even be prepared to apply, but I would be realy surprised if
UNICTRAL, ICC, AAA and a number of other insitutions don't apply soon. If they
failed to do so, this would be their fault, not ours or WIPO's.
