Is the thinking that this work is not needed for the Board report?  If not, 
then an October completion is way too late.  I stongly believe that we need to 
complete our work in two months as mentioned a couple times yesterday and 
submit the report to the Board NLT August.

> Colleagues

Just following up on our weekend meeting in the context of the PRO- 
WG.  I have set out below a suggestion for a way forward after  
consultation with Avri Doria, Kristina Rosette and Mike Rodenbaugh.

> Background:
> The PRO-WG recommendations suggested that the production of a  
> reference implementation document on a variety of rights protection  
> mechanisms may be useful for potential gTLD applicants.

> Objective:

> To produce a reference implementation document on a range of  
> possible rights protection mechanisms or circumstances that new  
> gTLD applicants may consider in the application process.  The work  
> will not re-open the work of the PRO-WG but will provide some  
> practical and user friendly descriptions about RPMs.  The work may  
> also describe conditions or circumstances that may make the use of  
> an RPM unnecessary.

> Please respond to me directly if you would like to be included in  
> the work of this group.  You may wish to invite other experts with  
> experience in implementing RPMs or experience in establishing  
> alternate models of TLDs that may not require an RPM, to  
> participate in the group.
> The group will begin its work work on Tuesday 10 July (suggested  
> timing is 13h00 UTC 15h00 Brussels 17h00 11h00 Washington DC  and  
> 08h00 LA).  The group's work will be completed by 15 October and  
> will use the  existing PRO-WG mailing list and archive which will  
> be adjusted to include new members.  The majority of the work will  
> take place via email with fortnightly one hour conference calls to  
> progress the work.
> Baseline materials:
> PRO WG Report -- http://gnso.icann.org/drafts/GNSO-PRO-WG- 
> final-01Jun07.pdf
> Outputs:
> Plain language descriptions of a variety of RPMs that may be  
> considered by applicants.   This is a writing group concerned with  
> implementation materials not a policy discussion group in the  
> formal context of the policy development process for new TLDs.

> [I'll prepare a template for the group and will assist with  
> development of the work.]
Kind regards.
