Thanks you for the nomination. If other people think it is a good idea, I will certainly consider it. I endorse the idea of Evan as one of the co-chairs.

For myself, I am committed to this effort and have been yelling in the wildness about it since the days of the new gTLD GNSO effort.

But in considering me, I ask people to take the following into account.

My one real concern is that having thought on it for a while I may be a bit too much of a champion for the cause as well as for specific issues within that cause. And while I consider myself good at putting my concerns aside for neutrality's sake, I also know that it is sometimes impossible to really completely do so.

Also, I have been lobbying for years that an independent foundation be established to take windfall profits from auctions and even from the fees themselves (assuming there are some after the round is over) and do fund raising from registrars and the like. While I could stop championing this idea if the WG decided that this was not a goal, it would make me sad to do so.

Thanks again, Sébastien for the confidence.


Avri, as one of the other voices in the wilderness, I support the nomination. This is not a traditional working group where there are different "sides", it is a WG looking for any and all methodologies to address the problem. In this case, I strongly support a chair (or co-chair) who is passionate about the cause.
