Just in case anyone is wondering what Sean is referring to:
http://www.icann.org/general/lynn-reform-proposal-24feb02.htm

Basically the CEO of ICANN is saying "we give up" or "we can't control
absolutely everything with all these pesky requirement regarding
representation" and that DNS management needs to be turned over to
governments(ala a WIPO-type organization) and their cronies with a
self-referencing representational structure(read little to no
representation of anyone besides governments and their appointees via a
"Nominating comittee")

Watching this play out should be fascinating.
