Its quite clear that ICANN policy is made in DC, by ICANN staff, at

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
