Ray,

Thanks for the clarification.  Point taken.

The corresponding concern has to do with characterizing the ISTCG/IETF
side of things usefully.


So again, perhaps a conjunction set:

    With regards to the IANA trademark and the IANA.ORG domain, both
are associated with the IANA Numbering Services and not with a
particular IANA Numbering Services Operator.

    ThE IETF considers the IETF Trust to be an acceptable candidate for
holding the trademark and domain.

    The IETF would support a decision by the IETF Trust to hold the
IANA mark, and iana.org domain in behalf of the Internet community.
