Re: [registrars] Vote on dispute resolution policy

Amadeu and fellow registrars,

I would like to report to you that I intend to vote to approve
the WG-A report tonight.  I understand Michael's concerns, but
as I was also at the meeting in Washington DC, I was sufficiently
convinced that WIPO does not intend or want to be a DRP monopoly.

I think the overall result of the Washington DC meeting was 
possitive, and that the DRP that is in formulation will be 
able to meet most of our needs.  I think we all agree we
definately need unanimity as far as a Dispute Resolution Policy.
