I now see the IANA+NSI meetings as a contract negotiation.
After those two parties are done, it would appear that other
parties plan on negotiating directly with IANA, as well. To
see this for yourself, I suggest you review the CIX email that
was mistakenly sent to the public list. It would appear that
CIX, AIM and conceivably others intend on doing the same thing.
So, under this scenario, who is going to negotiate for the
IFWP consensus points????
