Its quite clear that ICANN policy is made in DC, by ICANN staff, at the request of the USG.


I tend to agree and must admit i am very much saddened at this turn of events. I know some who support the laissez faire status quo whois standard will be quite pleased, but i think that the long term implications are quite threatening.

So, do we role up the TF with a quick one line report saying that that events have overcome the policy process?

Or more accurately, that "events" have overcome everything that was once ICANN. It certainly makes for a much easier reform process. We'd just need to model around this - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puppet_state and call it a day.
