So, with ICANN 'now' starting to forge alliances and make partnerships,
despite some possibly bad moves early on, and despite some overly heavy
handedness on the USGov's part over the years. Is 'no more ICANN' really a
good move? Jay seems to make a good point, the devil you know vs the 'new'
devil :(

Would some/all of the ICANN situation been different had the  USGov't just
walked away one day one?
