Re: [ga] Input needed

Danny and all assembly members,

  The ICANN BOD and staff have known about other options
from the beginning.  Many have been put forth.  Most of them
were before you were actively involved in the process however.
Perhaps some more in-depth research into the archives of various
forum venues would be a good exercise for you to again
delve into in more depth.  For instance the archives of the
Comments@icann.org and comments@iana.org would be
very good starting areas.

  In addition the Structure TF was a closed effort.  As such
ideas could not be articulated or provided in a transparent
fashion.  Given that, it is difficult to adequately provide for
different alternatives in any meaningful manner.  This is one
reason why we [INEGroup] were very adamant about having
WG's (Working Groups] Within the GA and other forums
so as to facilitate a much more consensus (Measured of course
by voting) based process.  Again, without good process,
no good product can be the result.  This is an axiom of good
management and anyone that has been involved in management
technique know instinctively or by experience..

 Just today though Danny another alternative is being floated,
See: http://www.icannwatch.org/essays/022602-johnson-crawford-icann2.htm
for example.  I have only done a quick read and it is lacking some
practical and process details that need to be delineated more specifically.
But overall it looks pretty fair..  One must understand that this is
and Essay however...

  So Danny, in conclusion other approaches to the restructuring of
ICANN, the SO's and other specific areas of ICANN have been
delineated in great detail on a number of occasions from a
fairly diverse number of interested parties or groups.  It is just
that the ICANN BOD and staff have ignored them for reasons
yet to be known....
