Just a minor point that may be relevant to the IANA transition discussions:

NTIA's role has been one of oversight, ensuring that ICANN (including ICANN's Board) has acted according to their published policies and processes.  That is, NTIA provided assurance (to some at least, including many governments even if they would not say so publicly) that ICANN couldn't run amok and scribble all over a resource upon which the entire Internet relied.

Whether this oversight remains necessary and, if so, by whom and how it should be done is probably relevant to the IANA transition.

(former General Manager of IANA, 2005 - 2010, but speaking only for myself and sometimes not even that)
