Re: UN Panel Aims to End Internet Tug of War by July

ICANN won't say yes. Now that a new fee for TLD operators goes to ICANN,
they won't want to give it up. Simple non-profit business practices. If
ITU operates it, they would keep the existing fees and then add a few
others. I think we've already seen the bottom in terms of fees to
operate a registry. Even as everything to do the job gets cheaper, the
fees to kick upstairs will probably keep going up.
To keep this on-topic, I think that the operational internet won't have
much to say as long as the control is managed/moved seamlessly and no
unusually draconian policies are put _into practice_. I'm positive there
are already some pretty draconian polices on the books, but because they
haven't become operational issues yet, no one worries about them.

significant portion of the operational internet says no?

No government will ever have the internet's best interest in mind when
they talk about controlling it. Luckily government control has been kept
some what to a minimum so far but it's growing rapidly and this is
another attempt for a government body to "control" the internet.
I wonder what new rules will be put in place if the ITU gets control?
I also wonder if the ITU can really take control. What if the U.N. says
the ITU should run the TLD's and ICANN says no?
