The problem in this discusssion is there is no meeting of the minds on
what the problem really is.

"The GAC would like better IP protections for IGO names in the DNS
space" is not a problem definition. It's too vague.

Perhaps they were more specific.

All the various descriptions of the problems in getting a problem
addressed are not problem definitions.

The problems caused by insufficient IP protection is useful as it
helps motivate the reason to think about this at all, but it's not a
problem definition, only a bad result of lack of a solution.

IP protection in the general case is known to be a very difficult
problem due to the very reasonable "confusingly similar" aspect.
