My apologizes for being so silent, however, I have had my head buried in
the geographic and geopolitical subgroup. Notwithstanding my silence, I
have been following the work of the group. While I have some reservation
about the removal of the consensus safety mechanism, I will respect the
limitation of the GNSO telling other supporting organizations and
advisory groups on how they go about reaching a decision. However, where
I do have a strong position is in connection with properly documenting
how a decision is reached. As the LSE review of the GNSO reported there
is the need for a more accurate picture of where
individuals/organizations stand on specific decisions. Merely reporting
a vote of X council members is not consistent with the open and
transparent requirements set forth in the ICANN bylaws, and does not
help the ICANN Board in making tough decisions. What the Board needs is
FACTS, more specifically detailed FACTS.

Therefore, I believe that the following text needs to be added to our
consensus position.

"Any consensus or other formally supported position from an ICANN
Advisory Committee or ICANN Supporting Organization must document the
position of each member within that committee or organization (i.e.
support, opposition, abstention) in compliance with both the spirit and
letter of the ICANN bylaws regarding openness and transparency."

Best regards,
