Re: [wg-b] FORMAL BALLOT No. 1


> Voting is scheduled to end on Monday midnight EST.

I am writing to apologise for the lack of a .nz vote being supplied on this very 
important issue. The mistake is entirely mine as after a planning meeting 
last Friday with .nz representatives, including Peter Dengate-Thrush, I 
somehow had convinced myself that the deadline for votes was this coming 
Friday Oct 29. In the press of work preparing to fly out on Friday for the 
ICANN meeting I neglected to re-check dates.

I realise that our vote is too late, but I thought it appropriate to indicate that 
.nz would have voted for Option D (ie both B & C) as it is our position that 
there are appropriate international treaty organisations to deal with the issue, 
and that a non-governmental, non-statutary, body is not the appropriate 
mechanism for developing international law. This is closely aligned with the 
New Zealand government position.

Again, my apologies for the mistake.
