I probably should have worded my questions more carefully.
I intended them to generate discussion, not to criticize
what was done. Should SOs fund ICANN? I think not. Should
SOs be self-funded? I think so. Should registries fund
ICANN? I think so.
What are your thoughts on these questions?

funding its activities, and it sees some of those funds
entities that are represented in the SOs. Put more
avenue for the registries (address and dns) to have policy
into ICANN is through the SOs. So it seems quite reasonable
ICANN would want some statement about how that funding is to

Of course. But you would think that ICANN would want some
policy about that funding, before entering into those

We didn't say that the SOs would be funding ICANN. Starting
the second sentence in the paper:
"Each organization has been tasked with defining how funds
be collected to pay for ICANN operations. It is not yet
whether ICANN or the SOs will be the agent for the
these. In any event, it appears that the majority of
funds will be
collected using models defined by the SOs and approved by
