Thanks for the responses ..
I believe we have agreed to have a version out before LA, right?
If yes, then maybe we should set a cutoff date for comments, after which we should compile an agreed version to be posted online, and continue discussing any remaining 'relevant' questions .. 

Views received so far, which I personally share and Narelle showed flexibility, are in favour of deleting Q9 .. 

As for Q7, I personally agree to deleting it, but allow me to propose a middle ground .. It may be changed to read "Does IANA carry out functions other than names, number & protocol identifiers?", although the answer may be the same, it  would be stating facts rather than predicting outcome of the process .. thoughts?

Q8 is one of the questions that were listed for the session held at the IGF, but I agree to its deletion .. 

Waiting for further comments before compiling a new version ..

Kind Regards

Like I said, I am not wed to the inclusion of the question re invocation of power. As they say, I was merely flying a kite as it is a question I have been frequently receiving.

To the latter question, that surely is up to the communities to propose and decide.

And a good question, indeed.

I agree they are questions people need and want answers to. Whether we should be the ones to provide them is subject to how much time we have as it can be a long diversion...

The risk is that it dilutes our credibility as impartial coordinators of the community finding its own answers.
