Evan/ Robin,

We've had a fair and lengthy airing of the views related to the IO but the CWG 
didn't reach consensus on these.  We listed "divergence" as the level of 
support for the proposed IO recommendation (Recommendation 10.1).   I don't 
think this requires clarification from the group.  

Is there some reason to believe we would now achieve consensus on this issue?  
If so, I would be happy to discuss it, but it didn't sound that way from our 
meeting in Cartagena.  ICANN is accepting public comments for another two weeks 
on the PFAG and that probably would be more appropriate vehicle to raise such 

I think our task this week is to address the specific items in the Board 
resolution, but I welcome the views of others in the group.
