ICANN anticipates that its primary relationships
will be with Internet domain name and IP number registries and
registrars. In some cases (such as the registrar accreditation
process described above), ICANN will adhere to minimum requirements
on registries or registrars for participation in a given element
of domain name or IP number administration. These requirements
will be designed to ensure stability, competition, private bottom-up
coordination where possible, and representation in the naming
and numbering systems--as called for in the U.S. Department of
Commerce's policy statement on Management of Internet Names and
