business and in into the PSO business it is now chartered for.

    True. And it should also get out of the operations biz,
    but that is another kettle of fish.

The problem there is that there is no place for operations discussions,
AFAICT. This may be an oversight on part of the ICANN conceptual framework.
Most of the rest of us assumed (yeah, I know) that the IETF would handle
that. Agreed, this may be in error. But, it is an error without a solution. 

        Protocols are not Operations.
        Operations fourms exist independent of IETF.
        (see the various *NOG's, EOF-LIST, APOP, et.al.)
        Protocol developers & Policy makers should listen
        to Operators.

        To subsume operations in the IETF is just as bad as 
        subsuming policy in the IETF.
