[CWG-Stewardship] Do we need an extra scenario given the requirements formulated by the CCWG-Accountability ?

Hi all

I don't think this works. The ICANN community is what would have the
overarching responsibility here. That's not the same as the global
multistakeholder community which is where the IANA functions are going, and
it is not a legitimate proxy for it.

The work of our accountability CCWG might help improve the IANA
accountability situation, but shouldn't in my view replace your work to
develop a robust distributed stewardship model for the IANA functions -
something an internal-to-ICANN solution can never deliver.
