I said "most governments". Anyway, if a government does not participate in
GAC, do you expect it to have any stand on the IANA transition?

I propose that this issue be further upgrade of different platforms, more

By the time we are holding the next rounds of IGF, the IANA transition
process will be behind us. Look at the timelines below. That is why several
