I don't know why you would make such an assertion, but Perry and I have had
no interactions on this topic for some months.
As to "digressions" I don't know what aspect of this you think is a
digression. I'm trying to point out some difficulties with the assertions
you are making.

To call what IANA had a 'process' is to put it into a level of firmness and
formality which is not matched by the descriptions of many who were involved.

While I realize the comfort that you gain by referring to the IAHC as if a)
it was separate from IANA and b) it somehow sought to "own" something,
neither is true. The IAHC was an IANA-tasked activity. Further, the IAHC
had/has no "ownership" because those on the committee a) are mostly no
longer on the committee, b) were people with no vested interested in
registry operations, and c) established a public interest structure rather
than something oriented towards organizational or personal power or profit.
