[wg-b] technical charter, no broader authority
ICANN has no authority beyond its limited technical charter.
ICANN has sold its soul to tm interests*, and so oversteps its limited technical
charter at every turn.
ICANN lies* (badly) to anyone holding a microphone, or pencil and pad.
*The lies extend to tm interests too - the top-down seizure policies neither
recognize, nor exempt, trademark status relative to a domain name. Duh, you lose
