By now as the responses to the options list come in,it should be
apparent that no one view is dominant.
It behooves us to seek out ways in which *different*
views about the management of the name space can be
accommodated and co-exist.
No one should be operating under the illusion that
there will be a single "victor" in an ideological war
over the status of the root. Either we cooperate and
co-exist, or the whole ICANN arrangement comes
That's just the way it is.
