Negotiate with whom?

What I see is a conflict of evidence. .NZ (Jordan) is stating that we

Firstly it is NOT the USG. I heard Mr Strickling say this, in person.

But I will agree that itt does come, as you say, from within ICANN

I cannot see how the technical community can set the schedule on on what

pointer to who, and how, set the schedule in this way.
