Dear All,

I agree with the nomination of Marika.

After all, from my little experience, the goal of a drafting team is to create the guidelines for the future working group, in accordance with Icann rules.

I guess Marika knows them better that any other.

Best regards.

At the meeting last week, I was asked to consider whether I would agree
to chair this DT.

I would agree to chair the DT, but only on the understanding that I plan
to be an active participant and would implicitily be taking off my chair
hat on a very regular basis. Not at all ideal.

I do have an alternative suggestion. I nominate Marika to chair this DT.
She is certainly capable of doing so, her neutrality is beyond question
and since she wrote the IR, she is perhaps the most knowledgeable person
on the issue. If I were to take on the chair position, and the group
wanted me to play strictly by the rules, I would regularly be handing
the chair responsibility to Marika anyway, so why not just regularize it
by appointing her chair?

We do not want ICANN staff making our decisions, but that is not the
purpose of a chair in a group like this. It is purely to oversee the
process. I understand that this is not normally how we do things, but I
can find no reason not to.
