I think one of the keys here is in those cases, most of those
organization are organization formed outside of the corporation. they
are not parts of that organization. I think the parallel to stockholder
corporations is problematic at best. For the most part, if a corpration
ceases to exist, its stockholders continue to exist. If ICANN were to
cease, I expect that the ACSO would also cease to exist. Also in a
stockholder corpration, and shareholder can just leave and buy stock in
another organization. I have trouble imagining how that works with a
multistakeholder organization that needs to have an internal set of
check and balances.
