Replying to both Mike Linksvayer & Bradley Kuhn:

The Commission was on fairly shaky statutory ground the first time around that they tried this.  I was surprised that they did not wind up with an Arbitrary & Capricious finding against the Open Internet Order as well as it being found to be without statutory enablement.  They really do need to go back to Congress to get legislation passed giving them authority to do something like this, I feel.

Any Notice of Proposed Rulemaking conceivably kicks things out into the long grass.  If the record gets flooded, people do actually have to read such and summarize such so it can be dealt with.  With the sampling by The Verge of some of the more bizarre things already in the record...I don't expect final resolution to be a quick thing at all.
