So much for policy development processes.   I guess we might as well
disband the TF, since the Board already appears to have decided.

As attractive as that sounds, the new MoU (and it is not different in any important sense from the old one) calls upon ICANN to enforce "existing whois policy." If the policy changes.....


Are you saying that if existing policy was changed, then the new MOU would call for enforcing that new policy as that would be the existing policy at that time?

That's one interpretation. And with respect to Milton, a naive one.

The document clearly says, in my read, *the* -existing- policy, i.e. the current policy. Despite the fact that there is vagueness in the language, it is clear the DOC, Twomey and the lobby-weasels that put this together, all intended that the policy doesn't change from the current implementation.

Its quite clear that ICANN policy is made in DC, by ICANN staff, at the request of the USG.
