It is interesting to note that ICANN only became an ardent supporter of removing the previous position of separation of registry and registrar functions - AFTER- it became clear that ICANN could become the monopoly holder of the root zone. What better place
to control both functions!

Of course having that enforced separation would require ICANN to chose... to become the (likely to be highly profitable) registrar for the root zone OR to own the root zone editorial process - which it has claimed since its inception. They apparently don't want to make that
choice.  They want both.
