Time to be worried maybe ?

Mandelson's Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR) has asked Nominet, which is in charge of the .co.uk registry, to justify its independence from Whitehall.

As well as day-to-day running of the .co.uk registry, Nominet represents the UK at ICANN meetings. The US organisation exercises overall control over the internet's naming systems, and so has a very significant role in policy and development debates in which governments demand a voice.

Nominet also coordinates the UK's presence at the UN's Internet Governance Forum, an annual discussion of internet policy independent of ICANN.

The Government seems concerned that the executive committee running the board have not set up a reasonably robust and transparent system of representation and are believed to be currently engaged in in-fighting over the appointment of a recent member to the board, I,m sure this is the real concern and not any altruistic aim to seize "power/control"  as the reg folks seem to be punting.
