It does not alleviate my concerns regarding immunity of jurisdiction, for
the reasons set forth in my previous E-Mail.

It does alleviate many of my other concerns, and is indeed pretty much what
I have proposed myself: that ICANN and IANA should be membership
organizations directly accountable to their members (not through indirect
NomComs and such).
