Since I've seen mere conference venue arguments go on endlessly with
great amounts of divisiveness and bitterness I can't help but wonder
about the (f)utility of "what country should ICANN and/or IANA be
By what process would one even begin to decide something like this?
Nominations and a vote? Solicited proposals? An RFP? Applause-o-meter?
Who would have the authority? I suppose the ICANN board could move the
corporation and IANA along with it if it were an ICANN function.
I have no idea who could move IANA alone.
Right now, in the midst of this transition, it just seems like a huge
distraction. I suppose some see that as the ideal moment.
Kurt Vonnegut once said something like: In every litigation there is a
magic moment when neither party owns the property in question. It is
at that moment attorneys get their fees.
Or, paraphrased, policy makers can change the venue.
