Except that the UN has no power to take over anything. The UN and ITU can say anything they want, but they can't create regulations. Only national governments can do that through treaties and supporting legislation, and there seems to be little support for anything like this outside the UN.
I think this is one of those situations where those who support this junk are making as much noise as they can to hopefully cause everyone else to forget that there's nothing substantial behind any of it. It's all just bluster, and I've observed that, the more of that that you see, the less substance there is to back it up.
