Dear EC,

This isn't impossible. Indeed the ITU has been for some time trying to assume the role of internet administrator.

U.S. to relinquish remaining control over the Internet
By Craig Timberg, Friday, March 14, 2:19 PM
U.S. officials announced plans Friday to relinquish federal government control over the
+administration of the Internet, a move likely to please international critics but alarm many
+business leaders and others who rely on smooth functioning of the Web.
Pressure to let go of the final vestiges of U.S. authority over the system of Web addresses and
+domain names that organize the Internet has been building for more than a decade and was
+supercharged by the backlash to revelations about National Security Agency surveillance last year.
