What Steve Crocker said during the RIPE meeting was not wrong: ICANN is a multi-stakeholder organization, the ccNSO would probably be the place a policy about punishing governments by removing ccTLDs from the root would be initiated, and if someone wants to pursue a policy proposal, regardless of how unlikely it will be to reach consensus within the community, the ICANN organization will facilitate: that is the role of the ICANN organization.

However, what Tutu appears to imply, namely that Steve or ICANN supports or endorses the anti-shutdown proposal, is simply wrong.  Having spoken with Steve here in Madrid at the ICANN DNS Symposium just a few minutes ago, I can assure you he is NOT supportive of the proposal.
