Perhaps I can rephrase Eliot's point by referring back to the previous discussion of Andrew's proposed charter for the ianaplan activity.

It seems that the task at hand is limited to assessing and planning what needs to change if the NTIA contract with ICANN for the IANA functions goes away.

NTIA today has nothing to do with "accountability mechanisms for each of the parties administering each parameter space" under IETF policy management, and touches only a very small handful of general purpose parameter spaces associated with IETF protocols (DNS and IP).

Could you explain why "study[ing]…accountability mechanisms" of the rest of the "parties administering each protocol space" is important to move beyond the current ICANN-NTIA IANA functions contract? I guess I don't understand what organizations or processes you're proposing to "study," or to what purpose.
