Re: [gnso-thickwhois-dt] Comments on the Thick Whois PDP Draft Charter
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.
