Hi David,
Thanks for your instructive email, brother!

...may i add that there is an other possibility for
ICANN to varying the process in that regard.

It is included into the -POWERS- "RESTRICTIONS"
section of ICANN's Bylaws [1], to cover any case
of emergency. Please see below:


ICANN shall not act as a Domain Name System Registry or Registrar or
Internet Protocol Address Registry in competition with entities affected by
the policies of ICANN. Nothing in this *Section 2.2* is intended to prevent
ICANN from taking whatever steps are necessary to protect the operational
stability of the Internet in the event of financial failure of a Registry
or Registrar or other emergency.
