Is the thinking that this work is not needed for the Board report?
If not, then an October completion is way too late. I stongly
believe that we need to complete our work in two months as
mentioned a couple times yesterday and submit the report to the
Board NLT August.

Subject: [gtld-council] Rights Protection Mechanism Ad hoc
Just following up on our weekend meeting in the context of the PRO-
WG. I have set out below a suggestion for a way forward after
consultation with Avri Doria, Kristina Rosette and Mike Rodenbaugh.
> The PRO-WG recommendations suggested that the production of a
> reference implementation document on a variety of rights protection
> mechanisms may be useful for potential gTLD applicants.
> To produce a reference implementation document on a range of
> possible rights protection mechanisms or circumstances that new
> gTLD applicants may consider in the application process. The work
> will not re-open the work of the PRO-WG but will provide some
> practical and user friendly descriptions about RPMs. The work may
> also describe conditions or circumstances that may make the use of
> an RPM unnecessary.
> Please respond to me directly if you would like to be included in
> the work of this group. You may wish to invite other experts with
> experience in implementing RPMs or experience in establishing
> alternate models of TLDs that may not require an RPM, to
> participate in the group.
> The group will begin its work work on Tuesday 10 July (suggested
> timing is 13h00 UTC 15h00 Brussels 17h00 11h00 Washington DC and
> 08h00 LA). The group's work will be completed by 15 October and
> will use the existing PRO-WG mailing list and archive which will
> be adjusted to include new members. The majority of the work will
> take place via email with fortnightly one hour conference calls to
> progress the work.
> Baseline materials:
> PRO WG Report -- http://gnso.icann.org/drafts/GNSO-PRO-WG-
> Plain language descriptions of a variety of RPMs that may be
> considered by applicants. This is a writing group concerned with
> implementation materials not a policy discussion group in the
> formal context of the policy development process for new TLDs.
> [I'll prepare a template for the group and will assist with
> development of the work.]
