It seems rather odd to cast this as a project or process of the "domain
name industry."  The ecosystem of the Internet and the multistakeholder
community is much bigger than the "domain name industry" (which in turn is
supported by businesses, consumers, people and other institutions).  The
"domain name industry" has a trade association (the DNA); ICANN is not
that.  I have a great deal of respect for the part that the "domain name
industry" plays in the internet ecosystem.  But the two are not the same.
