  James and CPtec is exactly correct in their concerns.  These concerns are
by the lack of proper determination of BOD members of the ICANN that are
represented in the Draft-5 of the ICANN.  The need for a true democratic
self determination from the Stakeholder/user community is paramount indeed.
Unfortunately the ICANN Draft-5 doesn't provide for that to occur and opens up
the Stakeholder/user community to gross fraud and abuses of many kinds.

  It is for this reason and many others we (INEG. INC.) determined in
with many other organizations made some tough decisions in our proposed
improvement draft to the NTIA upon the NTIA's gracious requests for comments
and alternative to the ICANN Draft-5 proposal.
