The Internet and particularly the DNS is a global infrastructure. In this context, there is a global Internet-using public and DNS governance should reflect and respond to this globalized community, not a collection of national communities with their own distinct and possibly incompatible notion of what is in the public interest. If we wanted to have DNS governance reflect national conceptions of public interest we would have never set up ICANN, we would have worked through intergovernmental organizations.
