The Dep't of Commerce released an interesting note yesterday about DNS
management. The most interesting part says:
ICANN is the appropriate technical manager of the Internet DNS. The
United States continues to support the ongoing work of ICANN as the
technical manager of the DNS and related technical operations and
recognizes the progress it has made to date. The United States will
continue to provide oversight so that ICANN maintains its focus and meets
its core technical mission.
Plain language translation: ICANN is not in charge of domains, DOC is.
