I understand perfectly clearly that it would be bizarre to endow ICANN with any powers over the internal struggles of other countries, when their own processes are undemocratic, disrespected and untrustworthy.
I don't think it's realistic, obviously, for ICANN to regulate on political conflicts all over the world in any circumstances - no.
I DO think it's realistic for ICANN to make registrar accreditation conditional on a Code of minimum Standards.
That dimension of regulation and enforcement would benefit consumers in my view.
Naturally those registrars who didn't want to accommodate minimum reasonable standards would be obliged to forego accreditation.
If ICANN also extended more clearly defined "conditions" and "standards" to its Agreements with Registrars, and was resolved to enforce those standards, instead of standing wantonly by, then I believe that, too, would benefit consumers.
Do you get that?
