Independent: Bad idea to let UN muscle in on Internet

Rupert Cornwell writes in The Independent (UK):

[...] it is equally obvious that things cannot go on as they are. Some decision on ICANN's own future must be taken as soon as next year. Either some fig-leaf of international supervision must be devised, or the entire problem will have to be kicked into the long grass - perhaps by the creation of some new bureaucratic forum that would spend years examining the issue while today's arrangements quietly continued. Once upon a time, "benign neglect" was a lousy way for the US to run the dollar. But for the internet that approach has worked just fine.
