<P>Eric and all,</P>
<P>&nbsp; You left out one important aspect here.&nbsp; That being "Whom will 
have control of what gTLD and/or IP</P>
<P>address space" and what will be the criterion of having that control.&nbsp; 
Seems that DOC/NTIA is open</P>
<P>in this regard, but ICANN and a few of it's larger financial contributing 
Constituencies have a much</P>
<P>different view.&nbsp; Ergo their "Brand" of social engenerring seeks to 
become the gate keepers.&nbsp; This</P>
<P>leaves one to ask oneself is such appropriate and/or 
reasonable/rational?&nbsp; I say NO, no few</P>
<P>Special Interest Groups should have this overiding power for many obvious 
and a few not</P>
<P>so obvious reasons that have been debated and discussed sense

<DIV><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial">New gTLD roll outs are 
at the core and foundation of the reason for ICANN to even be in 
existance.&nbsp; The papers of Postal and the early machinations on this list 
1999-2003 had really very little to do with technical process.&nbsp; The task 
of the JPA concept is not rooted in some arcane data base at DARPA. The US 
departmen tasked with this whole matter is not scientific but COMMERCE. Indeed 
it would seem that science based engineers are fairing much better at consensus 
and movement toward stability than are the social science based governance

<DIV><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial">Governance in the area 
of addressing seems like a it does not exist. Postel told us; "A name indicates 
what we seek. An address indicates where it is. A route indicates how we get 
there." &nbsp;<SPAN class=yshortcuts id=lw_1254061891_3 style="BACKGROUND: none

quite well it seems without real interference from any government. What is most 
argued over is the COMMERCE of domain name space. </SPAN></DIV>
<DIV><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial">So the debate is not so 
much over "can we technically", but how shall we limit? how shall we control 
and how shall we charge?</SPAN>&nbsp;</DIV>
