In terms of accountability, ICANN needs strongly to consider separation.
It cannot be both gamekeeper and poacher, or perhaps a better metaphor,
both referee and player.
I submit to the WG that it needs to consider a plan to transition its
roles as registry operator (.INT, .ARPA) and as root server operator, so
as to remove any appearance of bias in its 'co-ordination' role.
(See McGonnell v UK for the definition of apparent bias).
