Dear Randy;

I am beginning to get the same impression, but I see difficulties moving forward. International agencies come 
to mind (the ITU or WIPO), as they are not subject
to government warrants, but I think that the existing ones have their own issues. And I have too many bad memories of Alternic 
to feel comfortable about Peter Sunde's P2P ideas. Balancing all of that, internationalizing ICANN may be the best
