here with a set of principles based on our discussion today.

1.  ICANN regions are relevant to the GNSO with respect to creating an 
mechanism for diversity of GNSO Council members.
2. The application of diversity based on regions will needs to be revised in 
the forthcoming
new structure of the GNSO council.
3. The existing ICANN regions present problems of imbalance.
4. Any change to ICANN regions should improve on this imbalance.
5. There is nothing sacred about the number of regions remaining at five.
6. ICANN should avoid making geo-political judgements and so where regions are 
refer to an authoritative third party wherever possible .
7. Where there are grey areas in such a third party regional construct, the CC 
manager of
the territory may opt-in to whichever region they wish (subject to some 
underlying logic to
avoid mere whim).
