Subject: Comments on DNS Transition, Docket No. 060519136-6136-01

Monterrey, Mexico, July 6th, 2006

Ms. Fiona Alexander
Office of International Affairs
National Telecommunications and Information Administration.

We appreciate the opportunity to make comments about your Notice of
Inquiry, and our opinion is as follows:

We strongly support the internationalized multi-stakeholder bottom-up
model. And we certainly, do not support any models subordinated to an
specific government or governments.

We expect to see the next stage of the ICANN transition at the
conclusion of the current MoU this year.

ICANN should continue its evolution and, in our view, should remain
organizationally and financially stable and mature.

ICANN must improve its internationalization. Having regional liaisons is
just the first step. It's needed to foster regional participation from
all the stakeholders in every region to strengthen ICANN legitimacy.

It is important to further internationalize ICANN, particularly to make
it less captive of the rules of only one jurisdiction. The US government
needs to lessen its perceived and actual influence on day-to-day
operations of ICANN and its role with the DNS, especially the IANA
functions.

Furthermore, ICANN must encourage Governments participation into
the Government Advisory Committee (GAC)

Respectfully submitted,

Oscar Robles
