I am not sure that governments are the real problem.
The problem may be that "governments" have not been
informed about what is going on. When they find out,
they are not happy and the local people are not happy...

This could be like someone driving around in a car that
just happens to "look" like a police car. When asked about
where the person obtained the permission to decorate
their car in that manner, they might claim..."the IANA".
When asked where the IANA obtained that authority,
the answer might be...the U.S. Government of course...
that seems to make everything third-world***
Internet countries people have not bothered to ask,
"who is the IANA ?".

It is OK until people now claim that the IANA has no
U.S. Government relationship...once people start down
that slippery slope then the questions eventually get
asked about where the authority came from...for some
of the 2-letter TLD delegates...they have no answer...
this is not a good situation...

The U.S. Government is the only body able to fix this.
Hopefully, they will start doing this in a matter of days.

not considered third-world in non-cyberspace activities.
There are also some third-world countries that are top
notch in terms of Internet. Some government officials do
not seem to understand this.
