RE: [gnso-dt-wg] domain tasting follow up
IPC statement closes for comment at 3:30 EDT. Barring any unforeseen client emergencies, I hope to submit it by 5:00 PM EDT. Worst case scenario is that it will be submitted before midnight EDT. Yes, as to call. -----Original Message----- From: owner-gnso-dt-wg@xxxxxxxxx [mailto:owner-gnso-dt-wg@xxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Liz Gasster Sent: Friday, March 28, 2008 2:04 PM To: gnso-dt-wg@xxxxxxxxx Subject: [gnso-dt-wg] domain tasting follow up All, Attached is the ALAC's updated constituency statement on domain tasting. I note Chuck's earlier update that the registry constituency statement will be forthcoming. That's what I am aware of so far. Could others provide updates for the team? Is there consensus for a call on Tuesday at usual time (1:00 Pacific time)? Glen and I can set that up.

Alan ========================================== The At Large Advisory Committee has consulted with its constituent bodies regarding the proposed GNSO Council motion on Domain Tasting. Some constituents would have preferred to see a more aggressive recommendation - specifically to eliminate the Add Grace Period entirely. However, the ALAC recognizes that compared to some alternative suggested ways of addressing domain tasting (such as using a 90% threshold instead of 10%, a more modest "restocking fee", more studies, or simply letting the domain name market evolve without intervention), the proposed action is relatively aggressive. Given that the proposed motion includes the requirement to monitor the implementation and effectiveness of the proposed limitations on the AGP, the ALAC unanimously supports the proposed motion.
