Re: [council] Please make comments on

YJ and all

we have just completed the 4th of July holiday weekend  (4 days) which is
probably our biggest holiday here in the USA. many of the members have not
even returned to their homes and have been off e-mail for the last few days.

putting an arbitrary time limit on your proposed agenda would not be at all
appropriate here. we should wait until Friday to give other names council
members the opportunity to comment and make suggestions.

let me make some comments on the proposed agenda items - not necessarily in

item # 3 I will ask ICANN staff to report to the council on the current
status of the TLD expansion issues and we will have the opportunity to
question them about the process at that time

item #4  please explain exactly what you are referring to here. I feel that
this topic is too vague and needs elaboration so that the members of the
council can decide on its merit as an agenda item. do you have any
proposal's here ? if so I believe it would be appropriate here to put them
into writing and communicated to the other council members

item#5 I feel it would be a good time to take a look at the WG E report here
but it has so far has only been posted for comment a bit less than 2 weeks.
I feel it is too early for the council to make specific recommendations or
take a public position as we could be criticized for not allowing adequate
time for comments and their review.
in the past we have always allowed at least 4 weeks for this comment period
(a policy that the NCDHC constituency and you in particular have been most
supportive of) and I personally do not feel it would be appropriate to
modify this policy at this time.  if the council wishes to make a proposal
to modify future notice periods for items like this it would be a good time
to consider that proposal

item #7 this is an essential agenda item. we are well into our second year
and still having issues like this on our plates.
hopefully staff and Elizabeth will have a brief report on the progress made
since the last meeting

we need to be more specific with regard to the following areas
a. secretariat operation
b. specific methodology for receiving payments from constituencies
c. how do we deal with delinquent constituencies (I.e. monetary penalties,
sanctions, loss of voting rights etc ?)

item # 8 please elaborate a bit more on this topic. what do you feel we must
do here and how do you feel we can accomplish this

with respect to the proposal regarding the wg-c 6 items. I discussed this
with staff and it is entirely too late for consideration at yokahama by the
board of items like Philip is proposing. I personally find no problem in
recognizing the relevance in the gtld consideration process  of the items
specifically covered in the 4/11/00 consensus call item #2 but share the
same concerns elaborated in the wg-c chairs report of 4/17/00  that "that
the principles (while well-meant) were not useful or meaningful, and were
too vague and subjective to serve as technical requirements"

I would also like to propose another agenda item as follows:

after almost 2 years of DNSO operation I feel it would be a good idea for
the names council to consider a little "self reflection" and take a close
look at how we can make this body which represents such a diverse set of
interests sharing a universal commonality  more efficient and effective in
the future.

it is also my understanding that the board may have some additional items
they wish to put before the council for their
assistance & review.

my very best wishes to you and I look forward to seeing you in yokahama
