I would think that it would be, but on a voluntary basis.
When the chartering organization charters a group, they need to figure out what
modalities to use. Once can expect that if the GNSO is one of the partners,
they would recommend it, e.g. we use a draft of it in JAS which is cross
chartered by ALAC and GNSO.
But then again, they could decide to do something else.
Anyone could, it is just a guideline.
So no obligation, but availability.
I think that why we changed the language from GNSO Council to chartering
