Donald says:

I'm puzzled why anyone would think that, these days, IANA is under
US DoD authority.  If IANA were under any US Goverment authority,
it would be NSF.

Sorry to disagree with you Donald  but i have been quite explicitly told 
that if IANA is under the authority of anyone it is under the authority 
of NOT DoD NOR NSF but rather the **Advanced Research Projects Agency** 
(ARPA).  Now if the director of ARPA steps forward, or any other ARPA 
official comes forward and says no ARPA claims no authority over IANA 
then we'll all be enlightened.
