Agreed.  If the SOs consists of registrars and registries, they absolutely
are too conflicted out to adjudicate their own policy.  I certainly don't
propose that if there is a dispute resolution policy (not just regarding
disputes between DN holders but other disputes as between ISPs for example
over allocation of address space, for example), that the SO itself cannot
be the adjudicative body.
