The concept makes sense to me, but I'd be interested to understand
how that would be implemented. All decisions of the trust happen in
discussions on the IETF mailing list, and the consensus of the
community as determined by J i m F l e m i n g rules?
As Jorge pointed out:
This is covered by Section 6.1(c) of the Trust Agreement. If
there are ever fewer than 3 Trustees, the IESG will appoint new
Trustees. The existing Trustees do NOT become "permanent appointments"
if the IAOC is dissolved. Rather, the IESG would appoint 3 Trustees
until the IAOC or some successor is constituted.
