    "discuss what measures can be taken"

    1. GAC Members need to join ICANN for a nice large annual donation, say $100,000,000 per country.

    2. GAC Members need to agree to only allow the
    secure ICANN root-zone in their country, with
    Google helping to advertise for the .COM owners.

    3. GAC Members need to sign lengthy contracts with
    ICANN making it clear that ICANN makes all key

    Have NRO.NET Dangle Those /8s Out as Distractions

    China says, "We are not a developing country, we
    have our own address space, take a hike Vint".

    Europe says, "We are on to you Vint, if you need
    any routable address blocks, let us know, we may
    have some space for Google here, for a price."

    Canada says, "Yo Vint, where is Bernie ? We have
    our own root servers and .XXX is up and running."
    What happened to our application ?"

    Why would a special meeting be required to
    "ensure the participation of developing countries" ?

    Does that imply that developing countries are
    not participating ?

    Are these developing countries that Vinton Cerf
    plans to make up ? Like .IO ? or that Canadian
    developing country .EH ?

    Also, what about that developing country in
    Africa with the .COM top-level-domain from the
    United Nations ? COMoros ? Is that where ICANN
    is moving ?
