Into the bullet list in the first paragraph, I would add

   - Transparency of process
   - Compliance and enforceability
   - Public interest concerns (as expressed by the GAC and ALAC)

The first is simply in keeping in sync with ICANN's organization-wide AoC.

The second simply asserts that the PDP must produce clear language that can
easily be measured and enforced.

The third is to preclude subsequent confrontation with the GAC or other
bodies who would assert that the public interest (in general, and
specifically that of law enforcement and Internet end users) has not been
addressed during the PDP. This may be a GNSO chartered action, but its
implications and consequences reach well beyond the currently defined
stakeholder groups, and the greatest potential beneficiaries of a universal
thick-WHOIS policy have no representation within GNSO. Failing to actively
solicit and address the stated concerns of other stakeholders, especially
within the shadow of the WCIT activities, is IMO a recipe for long-term
failure and de-legitimization.

Also: Is the "tiered access" mentioned in the last paragraph of the mission
defined in the RAA? If so, references should be given; if not, the issue is
a matter of competitive implementation and out of scope.
