I can support it. Even Principe D: even though I tend to support lower fees for registrants and will argue for them whenever possible, I do not think that ICANN's purview includes setting or limiting these fees.

The only minor comment i might make is that that in B1 it might be useful to indicate that the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as well as other international declarations of rights have the similar concepts.


Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world,

Article 2.

Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self- governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty.

So I would suggest changing it to something similar:

The concept embodied in the above definition is espoused in The Universal Declaration of Human Rights as well the Declaration of Independence of the United States of America, ...

The reason I suggest this minor change is that while not everyone in ICANN is part of the US community (though ICANN itself is of course), we are all part of the UDHR community. I am not sure the wording I have suggested is the best and I can live with it as written, but in order to avoid possible contra-USian bias, I recommend it be modified slightly.
