 Dear all, 
 Attached is a paper prepared by InternetNZ staff called "ICANN/IANA: 
 and Structural Considerations". 
 In the document we explore the various parts of the NTIA role that 
 multistakeholder process now underway needs to build a new settlement 
 around. We make some comments regarding the importance of a 
transition to a 
 new settlement that deals with *all* aspects of the NTIA role - they 
 interlinked and only dealing with one part creates risks to the 
 of the ecosystem. 
 There are several diagrams attached that disaggregate the relevant 
 functions - policy, operations, oversight and so on - and that then 
 the institutional locations of those functions today. 
 Then further diagrams set out some options for future institutional 
 arrangements for these functions. 
 The intention is to stimulate debate and discussion about: 
 * what is and isn't part of the transition 
 * the wide range of solutions available for the institutional aspect 
of the 
 new settlement 
 I hope this is a constructive contribution. 
 Best regards
