ARINs involvement in the ITU does not equal government control of ARIN, it
may however equal ARIN influence of government.

I don't know of a single process change that has occurred because ARIN
has joined the ITU as a sector member.  Moreover, by doing so, ARIN has
gained a voice within the Union.  So have three of the four other RIRs.
It's important that ARIN and the other RIRs make use of that voice to
explain how the Internet works.  Absent that voice, a void has existed
that has been filled with misinformation.
