Berry, thanks for starting this thread. My comments embedded below.

I guess you can say Recommendation #16 is complete (to a certain degree).
A pretty low degree if I am any judge. At least based on my expectations.
A footnote to the Registrant Rights &
Responsibilities, just posted by ICANN today, references the gTLD lifecycle.
http://www.icann.org/en/registrars/gtld-lifecycle.htm (footnote #1)
I understand that the PEDNR recommendations are
not consensus policy, because the Council has
yet to vote and of course implement.
No, it is not Consensus Policy until Council
approves, the Board approves it, and there is an
acceptable implementation with reasonable target
dates. That is still a long way off.
Despite this, I was under the impression that
no Working Group member was pleased with the
accuracy and representation of this the gTLD
lifecycle diagram. I cannot speak for other
members, but I certainly do not support
it. Plus, my worst fears are being realized by
ICANN promoting this diagram and the conundrum
I predicted is starting to materialize. If I
recall correctly during WG deliberations there
was a lack of support for any specific
recommendation that a process diagram outlining
the Expiration process be created.
I think that is accurate. There was some
discussion that we needed a diagram, but there
was pretty much agreement that THIS diagram was
not the one. I find it unfortunate that this one was posted at this time.
No doubt if PEDNR recommendations are adopted,
then this diagram becomes invalid. My question
back to the WG, absent any CP on PEDNR
recommendations, is should ICANN & the Community
even advertise this gTLD lifecycle diagram to begin with?
As noted above, I agree that posting this one
which will at best, confuse, was a bad idea.
That being said, there does seem to be some
desire for *A* diagram, and once Council approves
our recommendations, perhaps some of us who are
interested might start trying to put together
something that is useful (I have no pre-conceived
notions of exactly what that would be).
I look forward to hearing responses. Thanks.
As a side note?.. The RtRRof2009RAA makes for
some great bedtime reading. I am not familiar
with the project plan for rolling out this
material, but I hope there is a more exciting
platform for Registrants to digest this
information. Else, we may encounter the same
results with Rt reading of Registrants Agreements, TOCs, etc?
Well, we have explicitly said that the info that
is posted as a result of our PDP be created with
our help. Let's hope we can all be more successful than this attempt.
