That might be a bad precedent, but we would not be setting it. Alan's 
suggestion, if I understand it right, is that Marika chair the Drafting Team, 
not the ensuing Working Group.

I am an observer to this group and this is not a personal comment on Marika or 
anyone else on policy staff, but I personally believe it would be a bad 
precedent to set to have ICANN policy staff serve as a chair of a policy 
working group.   

If you would like, we can take this issue up with the GNSO Council.  Until 
then, I would recommend finding at least a temporary chair from the group of

This seems like a good solution to me.

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.
