Thanks David for the clarification, and I think I see where we diverged— besides that you’re more in touch with the day-to-day operations than I am. Apologies to all for any confusion from what I said.

I think it depends on what one considers “IANA”— staff involved in the day-to-day tasks covered by the SLAs, DNS operations (which has at least sometimes been considered administratively separate from “IANA”, contractors hired to look into specifics of various activities to be undertaken by IANA staff, etc. 

But rather than push further into those details here, I’ll happily concede David’s clarifications, as IMHO they illustrate that our definitions may be ambiguous and need to be clarified.

This is an excellent example of the kind of functionality that PTI needs to be able to support, whether in-house or out-sourced.
