On the last two calls we have
been talking about whether we should address the many issues surrounding
domain name deletions in the "TRANSFER Task Force." Let me again
reiterate that as important I believe that issue is to the Internet community,
the TRANSFERS Task Force is not the appropriate body to be working
on that issue (or those issues....actually I am not sure what the issues we
would be looking at would be).
The point is clear.
There are rules that have been set out by the Names Council on the operation
of Task Forces (and there will be different ones in the new GNSO that we are
working on), but the fact remains that a Task Force is convened for a
narrow purpose and may not exceed that scope without a formal
recommendation from the Names Council regardless of how bad we want to address
the issue. As inconvenient or time consuming as this process may be, we
must follow these rules. The Deletions issues may indeed need to go to a
Task Force. But that is a decision for the Names Council and not for
We have a tough job to do,
and that is to draft a report on Transfers. We have to buckle down and
get that done. I implore each of you to recommend that we refer the
deletions issues to the Names Council to convene a different task force
to address this subject. Neither Christine nor I were selected by
my constituency to represent them on deletions.
Personally, I am not sure I
have the time to address those issues on a Task Force. So, I am putting
everyone on the group on notice, that if we start addressing those issues,
neither Christine nor I are authorized to speak on behalf of the
constituency. Please try to understand that I am not doing this to be
difficult, but rather because I (like a lot of people on this committee) am
extremely busy and do not feel that I can devote the time that is
needed to address the "DELETIONS" issue.
I remain faithfully
committed, however, to finishing the work on the
