That could perhaps be 'veri'fied by closely watching the share price, now 
still in the cellar.
An ICANN collapse and a simultaneous VRSN takeoff would make an interesting 

But how about new.net as a direct beneficiary?
How about Microsoft? The other GIP members?
How about the USG? Ambitious US politicians telling the world what they can 
do with their Domains :(

But somehow, I don't think ICANN  will collapse. Version 1.3 will be 
downgraded to V. 2.1 (Lynn's 2.0 is just a kite, IMHO)
It is the DNSO constituency structure that will crack up and go.
