Why, then, isn't this issue turned over to the ASO for discussion and
recommendations to the ICANN board?

An an ad hoc committee created by two unelected, unaccountable board
members circumvents the process established in the ICANN bylaws (which,
incidentally, can be changed on the fly by the ICANN board.)

The answer, of course, is Esther's Machiavellian approach, stated in
Santiago,  which is that outcomes matter more than process:

 "With all due respect," she told the audience, "we are less
interested in complaints about process" and more interested in "doing real
 work and moving forward."

Where in ICANN's labyrinthian scheme does anyone get to raise the question?
