There is nothing I can say that hasn't already been said explicitly and 
clearly and multiple times already.

I can only speak as a network engineer, and Verisign has already made it 
abundantly clear they dismiss engineering views entirely, they see us as a 
bunch of whiny anti-business geeks with no grip on reality.

Does SSAC have any authority over what Verisign does? If SSAC recommends 
something contrary to Verisign's designs, what's stopping Verisign from 
going ahead and doing it anyway? My questions to SSAC are not what they're 
currently asking for input for (according to their page, they are only 
looking for security and stability input at the moment).

If you know the proper ICANN committee for these questions, I'm all ears.
