Can you convert all that to dollars and sense ?

As an example, if you determine that your needs are to run a homeless shelter,
what will that cost ? and why should ISPs be paying for that ?

Also, what are the needs of all of the Directors and their "staffers" as they are called in D.C. ?
Do you think the ICANN and ARIN Directors should each maintain an office with staff ?
Would a $2,000,000 dollar per year budget per Director handle all their **needs** ?

You seem to want to start with **needs** and then work to costs.
Can you do that ?
