Bill - 
  The difference between considering ARIN's governance mechanisms versus 
  whatever results from the IANA Stewardship Transition is that one in 
  plainly under the control of the ARIN Board of Trustees (as informed 
  by this community) whereas the other is quite indeterminate at this 
  time and will be shaped by inputs from a wider span of communities 
  who deal with other identifier spaces and wider geography. As such,
  constraining ARIN's discussion of future fee schedule structures to
  solely those which meet your views on the future requirements that may 
  (or may not) emerge from the IANA Stewardship Transition process would 
  not appear a productive constraint for this community consultation.
