"...What ICANN needs, therefore, apart from coming under international
jurisdiction, is some kind of external oversight, which, however, need not
be of governments..."

What does international jurisdiction mean and what does external oversight
mean in practice as I understand that the ICANN board represents both
external and internal in terms of its composition. The entire community
also serve as oversight in one form or the other.

It's good to hear specifics.
