Re: [nc-org] Precis of changes in the new draft

the initial delegation clarification is not consistant with what was
discussed while i was on the call.. it was agreed that the term descriptors
were to be changed.

that was my CLEAR understanding prior to leaving the call..
was something changed afterward ?

> 2b: Bullet points 2 and 3 collapsed, to say now:
> "Must not attempt to impose any new prior restrictions on people or
organizations attempting to register names, or propose any new dispute
initiation procedures that could result in the cancellation of domain
delegations. The UDRP would apply as per section 5 below, however."
