Comments of the NCSG on the Draft RZERC Charter

The RZERC is a consultative committee with powers to

 - Propose architectural and operational changes to the DNS root zone (RZ).

- Engage expertise and conduct community consultations on RZ Evolution

- Consult with ICANN in the development of an RFP for RZ maintainer, and
help evaluate proposals if needed

- Initiate a public consultation process on operational and architectural
changes that might impose potential risk to the security, stability, or
resiliency of the root system

With the exception of 2 minor changes, we approve of the purpose, scope and
composition of the committee. The two changes are:

1) For the sake of clarity, and to avoid mission creep in the future, all
references to the "root zone" should be modified to say "DNS root zone."

2) The composition of the RZERC excludes end users. We recommend the
addition of one representative from the NCPH of the GNSO.
