[gnso-irtp-b-jun09] Serious problems with the ETRP and the overall IRTP-B initial report
Hi folks, Marika already posted a preview of some of my concerns about the ETRP and the entire report at: http://forum.icann.org/lists/gnso-irtp-b-jun09/msg00299.html with additional analysis/comments (including those from others) at: http://www.domainstate.com/showthread.php3?s=&threadid=105796 http://www.dnforum.com/f557/proposed-icann-expedited-transfer-reversal-policy-could-disrupt-secondary-market-thread-420833.html I spent 10 hours yesterday reading all of the conference call transcripts and email list archives since the inception of this working group, so I hope that this group will benefit from a fresh pair of eyes on the issues. It appears certain topics/ideas of concern/worry were hinted at by others in past discussions, but in my view they didn't really enunciate it very clearly to themselves or the working group, so their points didn't resonate. I've noticed that much of the "volume" of work has taken place, for better or for worse, either during the conference calls or through unarchived sub-group private emails, as opposed to this mailing list. So, what is the preferred method that folks would like the concerns to be raised? I don't see any conference calls scheduled before Brussels, and don't want to "swamp" folks with a bunch of emails that don't get read, wasting my time and yours. I could break the points down into one issue per separate email, or put them all into one document, or take on issues sequentially, whatever is easiest for you all to digest. If some might want to pick up the phone and talk, that's another route. Given many of the concerns will be highly critical of what's been produced to date, I hope that folks don't take the comments personally, by the way, or are too emotionally "invested" in the current report. The goal should be producing the best possible work. One working group member spoke about "inertia", and that's one of the problems I'll discuss. Let me know how best to proceed.
