    IP Numbers RIR's Seek Disengagement From ICANN
    posted by michael on Thursday June 20 2002, @08:34AM

    The RIR's have issued their views on ICANN Reform. They suggest that they should have much less of a relationship with ICANN -- less role in ICANN, and ICANN would have less of a role with the RIRs. No mention of money...

    • "The RIRs have already noted, in a submission to ICANN dated 8 May 2002, the set of principles that should frame the interaction between ICANN and the RIRs. The RIRs note that these principles were not substantively addressed by the Committee on ICANN Reform and Evolution paper of 31 May 2002."
    • " The RIRs would like to construct upon this foundation of effective operating practice to assume greater levels of responsibility for operational roles that are currently shared between the RIRs and ICANN. This is intended to allow ICANN to function properly as an independent body with the power of review, such that ICANN can properly assume a responsibility for oversight of the RIR activities in terms of ensuring that the RIRs operate within their adopted policies and processes, without being compromised in its independence by also assuming a level of direct responsibility in the operation of the address management process."
    • "The 31 May report of the Committee on ICANN Evolution and Reform noted that the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) could be the body responsible for directly overseeing the technical operational activities of ICANN (largely but not exclusively the work of the IANA). The RIRs understand that such a responsibility would encompass the operation of assignment of identifier blocks to the RIRs.....
      RIR Position: The RIRs are not in favour of passing this operational responsibility to a TAC.... The RIRs have concluded that in the interests of enhanced stability and efficiency, the responsibility for this particular IANA operational function (maintaining the IANA Address Registry) should be passed to the RIRs."
    • "In the scenario that the RIRs and the ASO assume a greater level of responsibility for operational and policy roles in managing Internet Address space, as proposed in this submission, the RIRs see little benefit in having the ASO seat more than one member of the ICANN Board, and is in agreement with the proposal that the chair of the Address Council be an ex-officio of the ICANN Board"
    And there’s lots more...

    Much less than deck chairs on the Titanic. More like rats, fleeing a sinking ship.

    I simply cannot believe that I am being paid to follow this comedy.

    Cripes! Would the last constituent part to run screaming from ICANN please turn out the lights. That would leave the IPC, but they're used to operating in the dark. -g

    As opposed to ICANN pro-big business stance.
