Just to note that mechanism to such dispute resolution for numbers is yet
complete as from the current MOU, the final shot still ends at the board's
table.(ref ICANN-ASO MOU on GPDP attachment A item 14) So while those
framework is being thought about with TLDs, those of numbers should not be
forgotten. ;)

recall: I had initially stayed clear the RIR MOU agreement (since the RIRs
had no problem with it) However if its to be considered as the oversight
mechanism when NTIA is out of the picture then i am concerned.
