As someone who very much wants to see the addressing function taken away from ICANN and moved directly to the NRO, I'm not sure MONC is any more useful than the NRO self-governing. The NRO is, after all, strictly bottom-up.  RIR members elect board members. RIR board members select a CEO.  The CEOs run the NRO.  There's accountability up and down the chain. 

My question is how do we leverage the NTIA's desire to step back to dissolve the MOU between USGOV and ICANN wrt the clause, "Establishment of policy for and direction of the allocation of IP number blocks;"
