auDA welcomes ICANN's decision to clarify 'transparency' and 'accountability'. 
These words are often used and mean different things
to different people.
 
We refer to the post made by CIRA..
 
            "CIRA is concerned however, about the short time period in which 
comments are 
            sought.  The notice seeking input was posted on October 16th and 
the close of 
            submissions is scheduled approximately two weeks later on October 
31st.
 
            This is clearly too short a time for many stakeholders to provide 
the 
            meaningful input that ICANN requires. 
 
            We respectfully request that the deadline be extended to December 
31st, 2006.  
            An extension of the time for submissions would not prejudice ICANN 
in any way 
            and would allow many stakeholders to participate in this important 
process"
 
We agree with this. More time is necessary and we believe that the process of 
clarifying what the various ICANN constituencies and
their members think 'transparency' and 'accountability' mean and what standards 
and processes are necessary would benefit
immeasurably from those constituencies having the opportunity to discuss in Sao 
Paolo.
