So, in sum, the grand total of discussion of this proposal in any form
in the full working group, where everyone had a chance to participate
and have input during the "consensus-building" process to which you
refer, was your posting of it as your position paper in December of
last year.

And yet you intend to present a version of this proposal as the WG-B
report (disclaimer or no disclaimer, this IS the WG-B report.)

This is unacceptable.  You have limited participation in the development of
this working group's product to those you deigned to talk with, and those
who could afford to attend the WG-B meetings in person at the various ICANN
