Return to Proposed Revisions to NSI Agreements Forum - Message Thread - FAQ
One final point. I would not agree with the NCDNHC
that agreements should be supported regardless of how we have arrived at this point.
There may be good points that come out of the contract negotiations process - - I
certainly believe that some of the proposed changes might be good, particularly those
concerning the use of three distinct contracts covering each TLD separately - - but
that should NOT excuse the fact that the subject matter of the negotiations went
far afield from that which the staff should have recognized to be the responsiblity
of ICANN's bottom-up policy-making process within the DNSO. As a lawyer who
has been frequently engaged in issues of due process, I have come to have no doubt
that process DOES matter.
