You more likely mean something like "how the NSF-funded InterNIC services
for DNS registration evolved into the commercial services of NSI and then
an array of competitive DNS registration services?" There's a number of
books out there that discuss those events, so I won't rehash it here, but
suffice to say that it involved via significant community meetings and
discussion of numerous proposals on how to best evolve the existing system.
Without a set of goals which explain why to change, and plan regarding how
to change, you risk significant disruption to the stability of the existing
system. Hence, my reiteration that there is global policy which describes
the current system (ICP-2) and that if there truly is a reason to change
the system, then the discussion should start with some proposals to change
that global policy.
