True. This is why I used "inadequate" to permit every evaluation. Lynn has 
been the first to call for a review. This is why I assume we have a 
consensus. Consensus is when *everyone* can agree should their prerequistes 
be met. Implementing it is to meet these prerequistes. Usually no more easy 
than uncovering the consensus...

Good. IMHO it is necessary (for the retained solution not to be immediately

I frankly do not think it is a bias. It sounds good. My effort to proceed 
step by step is to make sure there is no fundamental objection to the 
principle of an ICANN (whatever it may be). So at least we can object to 
further opponents that they had every possibility to speak up. And to treat 
them as disrupters without fearing to be wrong.

The only suggestion I will do is to name our common effort ... "WECANN" :-) 
to emphasize WE all want to find a proper solution (Mike's "We the ICANN"). 
I reserved "wecann.com". It will go to the ICANN review or to an  ICANN 
replacement depending on what the ICANN/Internet Communities say.
