Neither did the FCC which endorsed the AT&T position.
And one should acknowledge the practical sense in Patrick Greenweell's
comment on this point.

There is not one word in the IAB statement which has any bearing on
mandatory diversity ownership of entities involved in DNS. If you want to
continue to assert that there is, please feel free to cite it and
demonstrate its relevancy.
As usual, here is the standard to apply:
A matter is "technical coordination" of the Internet if:
A wrong decision has an immediate and direct impact on the
ability of the Internet to deliver its fundamental service, i.e.
the end-to-end transport of IP packets.
Otherwise it is a policy matter.
Well, that's two for today.
