Correct hence the reason why i said section B "*already captures* *what
needs to be said*" in relation to current situation.

Well at least we both agree on something; that its not ideal for section
III, which will also mean that it does not fit anywhere unless you don't
think section B text is adequate in its current form?

I think the text is saying "what if" from a "what is" perspective and non
of the questions asked about that.

Actually it doesn't, the statement if you read it again seem to be saying
the NTIA contract has no value and so there is no need for the proposed
"what next" and at the same time the last sentence of the same paragraph
tries to re-attach value to the NTIA contract to justify "what next"....Its
simply a contradiction. I think the complication can be avoided since it
won't change the meaning of the entire proposal anyway.
