Re: [discuss] Unofficial minutes June 11 1999 Names Council Meeting

Well of course I agree substance is important. That's why I wrote two long
reports about the WIPO report. And that is why I asked some serious
substantive questions on the IFWP list (cc'd to E.Dyson), none of which
have yet been answered.

They are both important.  But since the only answer to substance is to
"trust us", the (apparent) failure to observe procedural regularity
becomes more important than ever.
