Thanks for the quick turnaround on this and my comments are directed towards 
the overall structure of the document, not whether we should use the word 
shall, may or some other variant of the word in a certain section so do not 
worry about the edits in sections.

There is a great deal of prominence given in the intro to the Trademark 
Clearinghouse Proposal and throughout the TC area on the BC Minority Statement. 
Since they were the first ones to voice their Minority Statement maybe it has 
been given more prominence but I think this structure cannot hold once all 
Minority Statements are submitted.  I think you had it right when you wrote the 
following statement "Those minority opinions that were know at the time this 
Report was written are included. Others may be appended by Stakeholder Groups 
prior to the vote of the GNSO Council" I think that should be the end of the 
reporting and discussions on Minority positions and leave them for the 
Appendix.  By including every minority position in the summary and every point 
it clouds the report and will just be a list of Minority positions.

Just to be clear this is not intended to quiet the BC position but looking 
forward when everyone has their minority position submitted and all want to be 
heard in the same way.

Would like to hear some feedback on these thoughts, which are meant to be 
constructive and not towards stifling anyone's position and of course I will 
not be on the call tomorrow to be yelled at for this so feel free to do it over 
email. I guess this falls under my role as Margie wrote "plus a few non-lawyers 
who worked hard to keep the work focused and clear."

Subject: [gnso-sti] Draft STI Report - V3 for your review
Importance: High

Dear All,

Attached for your review is the third draft of the STI Report, which attempts 
to pick up everyone's comments and suggested revisions.   Where there were 
disagreements,  I attempted to include each of the alternative proposals in 

My hope is that we will be able to get through the entire document on 
tomorrow's call.

Best Regards,



Margie Milam
