My understanding of the term "yet to be determined" is that it means "yet
to be agreed upon by ICANN" and does not necessarily imply rejection of
previously made proposals contained in the WIPO Report.

I also request that people who choose Option B indicate what they
understand the term "other mechanisms" to mean. Believing that UDRP is
sufficient is different from believing that court litigation is sufficient.
