Submission to the Cross Community Working Group on Names Related Functions 
(CWG-IANA) on the Draft Transition Proposal 

The IANA Function Operator (IFO) performs a pure data processing function. 

NTIA's role is to administer the contract with the IFO, to monitor the 
performance and - if needed due to performance lacks- to ajust/retender 
the contract. Except for "verification of process and policy" (see 
T5-4 for ccTLDs and T8-6 for gTLDs) NTIA has no policy related role (such 
as delegation, transfer, revocation). 

The sparse policy related role can and should be removed from the remits 
of the organisation(s) to incept, leading to a simplistic function with no 
need to address any (ICANN) accountability questions as no policy 
decisions are being taken by neither, the IFO or the organisation(s) to 
incept as substitute to NTIA.

Reflecting the above remits, the proposed PRT, CSC, ConCo should be 
"collapsed" into a single body, constitued of (direct) IFO customers, e.g. 
cc- and gTLD representatives.
