I believe that the GNSO must make a recommendation on 2nd level protections prior to the first contract being signed (or prior to their starting to accept registrations). That is what we were requested to do.

If the Council feels that a "Drafting Team" is not the proper vehicle, then let it create a group with some other name - quickly. In my mind, it will still be the same people.

Although the PDP will look at the wider issue, and I feel that it should have been delayed until the IOC/RC first round issue was addressed, I see no problem with the efforts proceeding in parallel, other than that of volunteer work-load.

We (ICANN) have included other 2nd-level protections as implementation issues for this 1st round, and I see doing this one the same way as being quite consistent.

I just wanted to drop a quick note explaining why I cancelled the call for today. Over the past couple of weeks, there has been a lot of chatter in various groups about the dismantling of our drafting team for a variety of reasons ranging from the practical ("Lets wait until the PDP to restructure a group like this") to the cynical ("The Board rejected all of the Drafting Teams recommendations and there Is nothing left for the group to do"). Although the Drafting Team understands that the Board only dealt with the Top Level Recommendations and that the GAC Proposal to which we were responding has recommendations at the second level, there is still a lot of negative chatter out there calling for this group to be abandoned.

The GNSO Council Call will address this issue next week and decide (hopefully) the future of this group. Before that happens, however, I would like to know your thoughts on whether this Drafting Team should cease it operations. From my own personal perspective (and not necessarily my SG), I believe that although we voted in favor of commencing PDP on issues that are related to the IOC-RC proposals, the GNSO owes a response to the GAC on the GAC's September 2011 proposal (the majority of which addresses proposed second level protections). That proposal is now 8 months old and whether this Drafting Team helps with crafting that answer or not, the GNSO must provide a well-thought out and reasoned response. I believe it would not be wise to ignore the proposal or to tell the GAC that we are going to wait for the issue report to be drafted and finalized by October and then decide whether to commence a PDP and then take a year or longer to provide the GNSO Council response (which could be 2-3 years after the initial proposal).

In the end, it will not be me making this call, but rather the Council. I believe your feedback will help inform the Council on what it should do next week. If any of you have thoughts on this, I would be happy to present those thoughts to the Council next week.

I truly appreciate the work you all have done to and regardless of what ultimately happens, I believe the work has been beneficial to the GNSO Community.
