information that would change the views expressed in the Initial Report or move
the group closer to consensus
When did the working group conduct this review?
Why would the review be limited to "finding information that would
change the views expressed in the Initial Report or move the group
closer to consensus", as neither the mandate of the working group, nor
of comments on the work product of the working group, are limited to
some policy for which consensus was imaginable (though data was not)
between Nairobi and some point after Brussels and before Cartagena?
-- the comments did not move us closer to consensus
This isn't the relevant issue. Did they inform us? Yes, Brett raised
the point that our treatment of "registrars" has not distinguished
between registrars such as AOL, which appear to only serve the
corporate goals of AOL as a registrant, and registrars which serve
registrants generally. I made the point early on that "shell
registrars" were not what we should consider as integrating entities,
which is only one form of registrar vs registrars distinction. Brett
raised another, so the entire range of "what is a registrar" as
opposed to "what is an ICANN registrar contract", has been overlooked.
If we placed conditions on registrars, we might find the objections to
integration altered. We don't know that, so this is an area which we
had insufficient time to explore.
There may be other examples.
-- the comments will be included in the Phase I Final Report as a resource for
the working group as it continues its work in Phase II
let's tune these points up and then we can hand them off to Margie for
insertion into the report.
You now have mine.
