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