The struggle for representation of the governed (and the taxed) is going to
be just as tough in the successor agency as it was in ICANN.
If not tougher.
The same players will be there.
We flocked to ICANN (then NewCo) because of its initial Bylaws that held
out certain promises. This it itself had been the result of a political
struggle and concessions from both sides.
The formation of the DNSO with its "constituencies" has been a political
struggle. Brute power decided the outcome and the "Paris Draft" concept lost.
Do you have any illusion that brute financial and lobbying power is not
going to define the structures of a successor agency?
