I agree with Tim as well on this. There is no protocol for us to be sending
anything directly to the Board and that falls outside of the Policy Development
Process (which we are still in the middle of).
Even assuming we were to send something to the Board, and I apologize for not
being able to be on the call (don’t remove me from the list), I do not see the
value of the specific bullet points. If I were to interpret those bullet
points (in my own way), this is how I would read them:
Bullet 1. When we talked about compliance in our report, we really meant it.
Bullet 2. There is still no consensus on any solution (even though we told you
that a few weeks ago)
Bullet 3. We have been doing some work over the past few weeks and we plan on
doing more, but no consensus yet on any of it.
Bullet 4. When we discussed that there may be a need for exceptions in our
report that we sent to you, some of us meant that as well.
Not to be too cynical (I know – too late), but what do those that support
sending this list to the Board hope to achieve by sending the list?

I don't agree that anything further needs to be forwarded to the Board
at this point, and would be concerned that it just cause confusion and
delay. I don't see what they would get out of the points below that they
haven't gotten from the report.
So if it matters, my vote or opinion is that it not be sent. If the
Chairs deem there is consensus otherwise the. I would ask that at tleast
the last bullet be changed to simply read:
"While the WG has not identified exact examples there is a general
feeling that some exceptions could be granted."
There were many more examples discussed than the two cited in the text
below. Either they all should be cited or none at all, otherwise it
gives more weight to the two cited than there really is at this point.
