This was always the intent. Operating would necessarily depend on the 
blessing of the ASC in some way shape or form.

Also, regarding Geoff's comments concerning DNS litigation, there was a 
similar thread in the INTIAA DNS meetings arguing for explicit government 
exclusion of liability for the DNS registries. Clearly this must happen to 
avoid the registries becoming embroiled in civil lawsuits. This does not imply 
that the Internet community abrogates its responsibilities in managing and 
operating the name space, rather it seeks formal recognition of this role 
outside the court room.
