well, then there are a couple of simple rules to be observed

1) dont piss off the international community and declare Internet to US 
owned (like the guy who posted 'he is sick of his country to provide 
support for others who don't deserve it'.
2) work for seamless interoperability, and this means cast out people or 
corporations who do noe
3) don't implement anything that causes friction , is not backwards 
compatible, or deprives communities (which can be nations, networks, 
religious aggregations or sex maniacs) from expressing themselves 
*between themselves* (watch the stars!).

Be conservative in what you receive, leading edge in what you provide

Simple, no?
