DNS: Door Number 1, 2, or 3 ?

Casual observers to the Domain Name Debates might now
conclude that there are three choices or paths to follow:

	1. IANA (New) - http://www.iana.org
	2. ITU/ISOC/IAHC/PAB/POC/CORE - http://www.gtld-mou.org
	3. Network Solutions, Inc. - http://www.giaw.org

I suggest that people get behind the people forming the new IANA (#1 above)
and take the following steps:

	1. Incorporate the IANA as a non-profit company
	2. Deploy a NEW robust collection of Root Name Servers
	3. Delegate .COM, .NET and .ORG to the legacy InterNIC servers
	4. Deploy TWO new TLDs from the CORE choices for Switzerland (.CH)
	5. Allow other existing country code TLD registries to select 2 more TLDs
	6. Select a 16 person IANA Inc. Board of Directors by Choosing 2
		people from each of the IPv8 regions shown here:

This proposal should be easy for people following #2 to adopt. In
my opinion, it will be the shortest path to introducing new TLDs
to the general public. The 80+ CORE Registrars should be able
to compete in the OPEN market place against the people that are
trying to organize #3 above, behind closed doors in Washington, D.C.
