I like your approach or your sugestion who is 100% business oriented...
But unfortunately every thing will not be business oriented.
What do you call "country's Internet community"? How asuch community is created? Is it spontaneous? Who are those who make up this community? Who are its leaders?
What means "public benefit"? Who better than the government can guarantee the public interest?
In fact, I think behind those who think like you, there are hidden or unspoken ideas. Because you contradict yourself by saying:
1. "Some of us do not believe that nation states should be sovereign over "their ccTLD" ".
2. "ccTLDs should be managed by a country's Internet community"
How sincerely believe that sovereignty is lost if the ccTLD is managed by a true "country's Internet community"?
If this is the case, then it means that the members of this so-called national community is made up of yes-men folks, who serve the interests of invisible people. This is also the case for many of our so-called ICT civil society leaders in Africa...Who are Experts in Folloship.
How many are you in this list with the same opinion? It is always good to know, this will allow me or us to assess the relevance and the foundations of your thoughts.
