Hi Jari,

While I appreciate your measured tones, you may have understated the
situation in this case.  Two things are being proposed that require
careful consideration.  The first is the structure and process of how a
proposal to evolve the IANA functions.  The second is a statement about
what will be evolved and as important what will not change – perhaps for
a very long time.  Our input is very important into the process, and it
will be important that we provide a comprehensive response in the coming
weeks.  This is the IETF community's chance to provide input into that
response.  On these two issues, there will not be another opportunity.


In this case, people may not agree on
