Subject: Joe Sims' statement on consensus vs ICANN practice



"Some critics fear that this perversion of dot-org is a covert attempt by the Intellectual Property crowd to thwart the future establishment of 'protest' sites, such as ACME-WIDGETS-SUCK.ORG.
       Nonsense, scoff ICANN officials. "[T]he future of .org are policy decisions that should go through the consensus process," wrote Joe Sims, a lawyer working for ICANN that drafted the contract language.
       Sclavos’ [Verisign CEO] letter does acknowledge that are "issues to be determined" in handing over .org — implying that nothing is set in stone. ICANN, however, has already agreed that "at a minimum" current .org owners should be allowed to keep their Web sites "for one renewal cycle."

Simple question to ICANN:
Has the "agreement" referred to in the last paragraph been part of a "consensus process" (para.2)?
