If you haven't visited a country in a while and aren't aware of the civil unrest, then yeah you might assume that a revolution is a coup.   If you had attended NANOG meetings recently and talked with your SC chairs and others involved in moving things forward, you'd know something.

Hell, I've attended what, 2? in the last 10 years and the friction has always been apparent to me.

Note: not saying that this is a good idea, or that it's being done well.   I'm waiting to see how they approach this, just like the rest of you.   But I've been down this road before and I know very well how much work is involved, so I have a lot more patience.
