Thanks for the quick turnaround, Margie.
Quite relieved to see that the proposed modifications of the definitions seem
ok to me. Agree with the "working definition" approach here, that was always
the intention. Remember, these definitions are guides to the WG formation of
policy and not contract language.
For linguistic elegance, can we replace "equivalent access and
non-discriminatory access" with "equivalent, nondiscriminatory access" ? Not a
big deal but easier to read and the meaning seems the same.

Subject: [gnso-vi-feb10] Revised Charter, including updated Definitions
Please find attached a revised charter, that includes suggestions made to date
by Brian Cute and Jeff Eckhaus, for your review. I did not include Kristina’s
recent email suggestion, because I didn’t recall what variations were proposed
by Milton with respect to “resale and wholesale markets.”
Please note that the revisions to the definitions are intended to track the
language used in current registry agreements. These agreements use the terms
“equivalent access” and “non-discriminatory access” to describe these
obligations, but do not actually define these terms.
At yesterday’s call there was a request that Staff develop definitions to be
consistent with the analysis done through the implementation process. Doing
this will take longer than a few days, so we suggest that the working group
finalize the charter based on the current definitions. Staff can continue to
further develop these definitions if that is useful to the working group, and
update the charter when they are available.
