Thanks Philip.  In my opinion, these provide an excellent basis for
consideration and I hope others will add some of their own.

        Subject: [gnso-geo-dg] Principles - ICANN regions - 
        here with a set of principles based on our discussion today.
        1.  ICANN regions are relevant to the GNSO with respect to
creating an implementation mechanism for diversity of GNSO Council
        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 relevant, 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).
