Let's hope you're right, but I note that the ITU isn't an
inter-governmental organization, it's (depending on which part of their
web site you believe) a specialized agency of the United Nations, or an
organization based on public-private partnership since its inception, with
a membership of 193 countries and over 700 private-sector entities and
academic institutions. Sounds totally multistakeholder to me.
PS: And the ITU is definitely not a solution.
