RE: [wg-b] Revised Draft Ballot

Joop, I want to better understand your request to Michael.  I had seen
option B and C as separate.  One reads that there are mechanisms external to
ICANN which are adequate... and the second that such mechanisms wouldn't be
in ICANN's authority anyway. By the way, I saw Option A as being neutral on
who should develop such mechanism for the protection of famous marks. For
instance, and I would see this being discussed further, so do consider it a
very high level suggestion which requires much further thought and
discussion, it might be that the mechanism would be developed by WIPO and
recognized by ICANN, after vetting/review, comments, etc.

Could you explain more about why you suggest combining the options B and C?
I wonder if it might be that the options aren't mutually exclusive?  Which I
would agree.  I'm wondering about maybe a two part question: with a) and b)
which could both be voted separately. 

Just to be clear, so no one thinks I'm being disingenuous. I personally will
vote Option 1, but I am all for clarity on the questions... 

In any case, I value your thoughts and wanted to ask for more elaboration,
if you don't mind. best regards, Marilyn

Michael, could you please add an option that combines both B and C?
