The internet was to be "a model and a set of rules which will allow 
data networks of widely varying internal operation to be 
interconnected, permitting users to access remote resources and to 
permit intercomputer communication across the connected networks" 

Today this model has become the Internet architecture and the set of 
rules the "standards where the economics of global markets, fueled by 
technological advancements, drive global deployment of standards 
regardless of their formal status. [] They are chosen and defined 
based on technical merit, as judged by the contributed expertise of 
each participant; provide global interoperability, scalability, 
stability, and resiliency; enable global competition; serve as 
building blocks for further innovation; and contribute to the 
creation of global communities, benefiting  humanity".

The "permissionless innovation" leads to an open extension of the 
"data network" definition from physical to virtual where "widely 
internal operations", aside from the IETF set of rules, are emerging. 
These are the communities' networks of the network of networks.

In a nutshell, a governance by coopetition among 
existing/investigated global community markets.

This coopetition is not well accepted in here and at the NTIA, making 
it an Olds and Moderns competition. The RIRs are to chose their side. 
The USIETF protocol set, the Catenet shared infra/substructure, the 
IANA possible common consistency?

Up to you to decide.
