Right, and to be clear, I was responding to John's original question:

"Can we actually have *any* multi-stakeholder, private sector led, 
bottom-up policy development system for technical coordination 
of identifiers at the same time as we have parties presently that: 
1) have no existing contractual requirements to participate in the 
system, but 2) presently hold number resources in their belief as
personal property?"

with an example of one such system.  As I said, I suspect there are others, but the IANA/ccTLD situation is one I'm familiar with.
