The challenge of using third party software backed by commercial
entities will always include closures, mergers, acquisitions or simply

choice of Free and Open Source Software and find skills in ICANN to
manage it if it wants to avoid the vendor lock-in and the hey you
know, we are gonna switch off, leaving us constrained!
