I had suspected from the significant lack of discussion on this list that
substantive work was occurring "behind the scenes."  This verifies it.

If any decisions have been made, documents produced, or conclusions 
reached without the opportunity for input from ALL interested 
participants, and without the production of a record that is provided
by discussion on this list, then I protest in the strongest possible
terms.  This violates the spirit and the very purpose of the working
groups, and destroys even the illusion of openness and inclusion.

With this confirmation that significant work has occurred behind the
backs of those of us who joined this working group in good faith, any
claim of consensus made in any document handed to any body is rendered
highly suspect.

Consider this a formal complaint.  This is also being sent to the
Secretariat of the DNSO Names Council and Mike Roberts.  I request 
this matter be investigated and appropriate action taken.

I stand in support of Roeland in this, and with Mikki Barry's sentiments
regarding concerns over this group's product.  Please include them 
as comments regarding the current WG-B report, along with mine as noted
in this mailing.
