So David Crocker did not tell the truth in the panel discussion yesterday at
N+I (at which I and others spoke?)

I'll quote the news release for the benefit of those who did not read it:

          Details for this new arrangement have not yet been worked into a
  formal proposal. The interim Policy Oversight Committee will put
  forward an alternative plan for this new arrangement shortly, after
  consulting with the Policy Advisory Body, formed from existing
  signatories to the gTLD-MoU, and the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority
  and the Internet Society.

Speaking personally, and not in any official capacity
