let agree IETF is lacking formal interfaces with the real
world of users and the real world of operators. John
Klensin's official participation to the ICANN BoD is a first
good step towards formal links with operators.
Sigh. Whatever that relationship constitutes, "formal links
with operators" isn't one of them -- there are even fewer actual
operators represented and actively participating in ICANN than
there are in IETF.
Please, at least, get your facts right.
