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

San Salvador, El Salvador, July 6, 2006.

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

On behalf of SVNet, the .SV ccTLD (El Salvador), we respectfully
submit the following comment:

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)

Yours truly,

Rafael (Lito) Ibarra
