I think it would look very bad politically if one does not have an
option for voting in favour of the proposed changes. I would phrase
it as thus:
(a) I support the status quo agreement over the proposed revisions
(b) I support the proposed revisions over the status quo agreement
(c) I have no preference for one over the other
I would then have a second question, being
Do you support a 60 day extension to the May 18 Registrar divestiture
date for Verisign under the existing contract, in order that
amendments to the proposed new contract can be considered by ICANN and
(a) Yes I support a 60 day extension
(b) No I oppose a 60 day extension
(c) I have no preference
