People might assume that all of the ccTLD manager's actions have full
support of the local community, which is not always the case. I agree that
the voice of the individuals within the ccTLD should be heard as well.
As an example, I've come across an unconfirmed report that during the ccTLD
managers meeting in Stockholm. the .PH ccTLD manager proposed a change in
the ccTLD best practices draft so instead of it saying that the manager has
a duty to "consult with the community" he has proposed this be changed to
something like "consult with the community but not be constrained to follow
the community or get consensus" or something to that effect. This is quite
an alarming development if true, and I'd be interested to verify if this
was in fact raised during a discussion of ccTLD best practices. Are there
any minutes to the ccTLD meetings posted on line?
