you should probably be more concerned by this, if you go after more substance and reasons to worry:

1. China's own "order based" Internet governance, which Minister Lu presented in the NetMundial meeting and Chinese agencies say was praised:


2. The composition of the Council with two people not only from the same country but working for its government (one directly and one in an organization that provides consultancy and a career path for the government.)

Maybe Jean-Jacques has some explanations here, as this happened in his presence.

Thanks for the explanation.
I think a lot of people will be pleased to learn that we don't have
another entity cropping up in this space.

Your response w.r.t to Chinese reporting also clarifies why Jack Ma's
appointment seems to overshadow the rest of the co-chairs.

I guess this frees us up to deliberate more on the arbitrary and
unprecedented co-chair selection criteria.

​I suppose so, and I too appreciate the explanation ... though the episode, as described,  indicates a remarkable lack of media relations competence. Such a major issues as "what is the group named", one would think, should not be the subject of such needless confusion.

But now that THAT's out of the way .... we can get back to the original issue of trying to figure out exactly what problem ​this organization -- whatever it is called -- is supposed to non-redundantly solve. ;-) Adding Chinese representation to the mix doesn't magically provide an answer to that question.
