Sorry, some of the root consortia and the TLDS were around long before
ICANN.  Why should ICANN have any greater rights internationally?

In fact, like a war, it doesn't really matter who "started it" except when
being morally righteous.  If you look at Northern Ireland, as an example,
that started hundreds of years ago.   In the end, there has to be a "peace
process" so everyone can get on with their normal lives.

The real question is whether ICANN should have a policy?  What should it be?

BTW I agree with you that ICANN has a consensus framework.  However, there
is little evidence that it is any more than a facade.  That's something we
have yet to determine.
