[ga] Re: RAA 3.7.1

Dear Danny:

I do believe your reading of 3.7.1. is not correct.  It does not 
*require* ICANN to develop such a code of conduct. It requires 
registrars to *abide* by such a code should such a code be adopted 
following a consensus of accredited registrars. Clearly, the 
prerequisite action is for the accredited registrars to arrive at a 
consensus on such a code, something they have not yet achieved. 
ICANN cannot unilaterally modify its agreements with other parties.

There is nothing within the scope of the Blueprint or the ERC that 
would change this situation.
