What does it mean for names to be on the reserved list temporarily.  Can we not 
add and remove names from the reserved list at will before any PDP?  and there 
is nothing about this that indicates it is a temporary measure.  Even the 
communications of of the Board indicate that the negotiations on Reserved names 
are between the GAC and the Board - any mention of the PDP process that is 
nearly complete?

The list of names, e.g, includes acronyms, but the nearly complete PDP 
indicates that acronyms are not to be supported.  Was this taken in account?

And finally, assuming we acept this, which is really something we have no 
choice in, are they now going to take the liberty of removing and adjusting the 
Reserved names list whenever they, and the GAC, decide it is necessary without 
bothering with any of the processes that are the responsibility of the GNSO and 
its council?  Accepting such actions without formal protest by this WG and 
especially by the GNSO Council is acquiescence to the curtailment of GNSO's 
role at ICANN.  

I feel this is an insidious trend that must be protested.  It can't be allowed 
to go on with those of us working hard for compromise sitting meekly by.
