As a result from the decisions taken in the administrative meeting it was decided to focus on agenda item e).
A: it only makes recommendations!
A: true for the Names Council, not however for the GA and the WGs
A: it is ICANN that recognises the constituencies, anyone is welcome to form a constituency and seek ICANN approval
A: the NC doesnt necessarily have much influence on those decisions but can try anyhow
A: individuals elect half of the ICANN-Board
A: The DNSO is to provide expert input/advice to the ICANN-Board
A: though new ideas and thoughts are important, it is almost impossible to include them all given the time constraints
A: the process will always be imperfect
A: What are the "foundations"? NC is just fabricating the "windows"
A: results are yet tentative, the GA is asked for comments anyhow
A: all impacts are considered (e.g. the competition for ".com" on ccTLDs)
A: the NC may not be "done", but it is open, transparent and inclusive
