jfc/mg - 

Could you please clarify - in the above, "This" (that you assert folks want to get rid of) 
refers to: 

1) the overall US oversight model of the IANA provided by the present NTIA contract, or
 
2) not the US oversight, but the actual community-based Internet identifier 
   coordination system itself (consisting of IETF, IANA, ICANN, RIRs)?

Thanks!
