I disagree.  NTIA provides a giant accountability function.

Just about everyone goes running to NTIA whenever something they don't
like happens.  And the fine folks at NTIA finesse the situation and get
things back on the right track.  I believe it happens all the time.

NTIA are the adults in the room and we better have adequate
accountability all around when they step out of their role.
