BC statements and responses during public meetings (outreach events, public forum, etc.) Call for Public Input: ICANN’s Draft Proposal of the Principles, Mechanisms, and Process to Develop a Proposal to Transition NTIA's Stewardship of the IANA Functions (link<http://www.icann.org/en/about/agreements/iana/transition/draft-proposal-08apr14-en.htm>) (comments close 8-May) This document includes a very tight scoping of the transition proposal: "To ensure a clear understanding of the specific issues for which a proposal is sought, a document describing the scope of the document (and what is not in scope): (link<http://www.icann.org/en/about/agreements/iana/iana-transition-scoping-08apr14-en.pdf>)” This scoping document excludes the external accountability that NTIA provides through its authority to award the IANA contract to an entity other than ICANN. As Larry Strickling told the CSG in Singapore: I do think that there really are two sets of issues here that are teed up by our announcement. One is the very specific one of how do the INA functions work and defining the US role in that, and I do think personally although we would never dictate this, that it might make sense to have that specific question answered by people largely out of the customer base of INA, because they’re the ones that at the end of the day have to be satisfied with this. That’s not our decision. That’s the community decision, so that might make sense, but there’s also the other issue that’s clearly been teed up by this, and everyone recognizes it, and many of you have spoken eloquently about this since we got here on Friday, and that’s the symbolic role that we’ve played, whether it’s providing confidence to the community that these systems are going to work right, if the extent that people think that we were able to discipline ICANN by virtue of having - I know that’s Steve’s made that point quite directly throughout the weekend. And so that’s an important topic for the community to work through as well, and that was I think teed up in the second session yesterday. From our perspective we think the issues are interrelated. We certainly think it’s appropriate for the community to take on both issues. I think all we would like to see is that it be organized as efficiently as possible so that we get a good outcome at the end, and that we get a consensus outcome that the community can buy into.
