  THis statement is wholly true.  The IANA decided to, for whatever reasonsto abandon
the IFWP process, as well ignore any other Stakeholders input
in an open, transparent, and fair process.  This is indeed unfortunate, and history
will show that this has indeed occurred.

  This is an accurate analogy as far as it goes, however it should also be
understoodthat the the ORSC proposal is not the only proposal on the table.  THat the
BWG, or the ORSC's proposals meet the consensus of the IFWP process
conferences, the White Paper requirements, not the needs and desires of ALL
of the Stakeholders.
