Jamie et al.,

It's not about what is cheaper for ICANN at this junctue; it's about 
maintaining ICANN's unaccountability.  If Karl's suit fails, this will 
basically send a strong signal to everyone critical of ICANN that the 
organization in question is beyond the pale of law and order, and is 
effectively autocratic.  Such a message would go a long way towards 
disheartening any meek opposition to the status quo.
