        Subject: Re: [gnso-geo-dg] Principles - ICANN regions -
        Here some of my comments - principles:
        ICANN regions are different from other regional divisions, this
is problematic and confusing specially in developing countries and does
not favor participation and geographic diviersity into the ICANN
        In relation with Regions and geographic diversity requirements,
some flexibility should be allowed for representatives in the GNSO
        Different regions have different concerns and needs in relation
with ICANN activities. 
        Thanks and regards to all

                here with a set of principles based on our discussion
                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
                3. The existing ICANN regions present problems of
                4. Any change to ICANN regions should improve on this
                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).
