Onward + RFC-1591
I don't know how so many cross-postings got added to this topic, but I
prefer to keep it on the original list, thank you very much.

I agree with this sentiment. The question that I have is whether
RFC-1591 should be incorporated as an article in the DNSO bylaws?
Instead, I think that RFC-1591 is an established policy of the Internet,
and would be changed only after widespread review. That is, the
proposal for changes might come from DNSO, but it would have to be
approved by ICANN. And that means it is not a part of the DNSO bylaws.
Perhaps one of the first DNSO NC policy proposals to ICANN could be an
affirmation of RFC-1591?
