The private sector

Ms. Burr-

In follow-up questions to the October 7th hearing of the House
Committee on Science, you were asked by the Honorable
Representatives: "Do you agree with the ICANN's proposal to
incorporate in California? Would incorporating in Delaware, or a
different state make more sense?" 

You replied: "The Department of Commerce takes no position on the
relative merits of individual state law, but in general the
Department of Commerce believes that the private sector is in the
best position to determine the most appropriate state of
incorporation for the new corporation."

What did you mean by "the private sector"? Would you have the House
Committee on Science and the Internet community believe that you did
not know that it was Joe Sims, and Joe Sims alone, who decided to
incorporate the NewCo in California, in face of the opposition of
Tamar Frankel, chairman of the IFWP and therefore more worthy by far
than Joe Sims to be considered a representative of the private
sector's consensus?
