"Accordingly, in May we asked the groups developing the transition
documents how long it would take to finish and implement their
proposals.  After factoring in time for public comment, U.S. Government
evaluation and implementation of the proposals, the community estimated
it could take until at least September 2016 to complete this process. In
response to their feedback, we informed Congress on Friday that we plan
to extend our IANA contract with ICANN for one year to September 30,
2016. Beyond 2016, we have options to extend the contract for up to
three additional years if needed.

This one-year extension will provide the community with the time it
needs to finish its work. The groups are already far along in planning
the IANA transition and are currently taking comments on their IANA
transition proposals. As we indicated in a recent Federal Register
notice, we encourage all interested stakeholders to engage and weigh in
on the proposals."

    - Extract, NTIA statement, yesterday

I don't know whether this will be seen simply as time for
implementation, or whether it gives time to further develop and refine
the proposals (whether the ICG/IANA transition proposal or the related
ICANN accountability proposal).

Any thoughts, anyone?
