Chuck and all,
Good points and questions here Chuck. If the SO's are even partly
responsible for ICANN funding than there is certainly a conflict of interest
concern. To many games to be played here. The same is true with fees
as well. No, the ICANN needs several reliable long term sources of
funding. In our proposal to the NTIA we proposed a Trust fund, along
the lines of something that Karl A. once suggested. We now have that
Trust built and funded. There are also other methods a well.
