GNSO IDNC Initial Report response drafting group
Notes from conference call 19 February 2008

Participants: Edmon Chung (chair), Cary Karp, Charles Sha'ban; ICANN staff: 
Tina Dam, Marilyn Vernon, Olof Nordling

The meeting addressed the chair's draft response as sent to the list. This 
draft is largely based on statements in the GNSO response to the Issues Report 
and in the GNSO IDN WG Outcomes Report.

1. General comments
- neutral statements on registry eligibility criteria preferred, to avoid bias 
in favour of existing ccTLD registries
- some statements could be drafted in a less prescriptive way
- structure of the document could be clarified, with "comments" and "responses" 
possibly merged

2. Comments per section
2.1. Introduction
- clarification of items 4 and 5 could be considered

2.2. Mechanisms
- regarding the "currency" question/statement, it should be realized that not 
all relevant territories print their own money
- regarding A(i), there was good progress on this matter at the workshop in ND. 
The need to express minority statements at this stage is not obvious. Also, the 
sensitivities relating to sovereignty aspects should be kept in mind when 

3. Conclusions, next steps
- Edmon will amend the text, with Cary's and Tina's assistance on selected 
matters, and send a new draft to the list
- Tina will try to get an early release of the transcript from the workshop in 
ND, for the group's information
- a new call is needed early next week, 25 or 26 February, with a view to 
enable discussions in Council on 28 February
- a GSO response needs to be submitted by 4 March
