I post this to the BC list because understanding the views of different 
governments about a variety of topics that are also underway in external bodies 
but are relevant is relevant to BC's members interests within ICANN. 

This is lighter than some of the possible outcomes which indicated that there 
was a risk that some governments would declare they are leaving ICANN. That is 
NOT what this statement says, whatever else it does say. 

I have a little more insight as there is the IG aspect to it, so if anyone 
wants to talk to me off list about the IG "message" here.
