While I think it may be *unwise* for the Council to get involved in
contractual issues between ICANN and a registry or registrar, I don't
agree that it's out-of-scope. In fact, I might turn the whole report on
its head. Isn't the better answer that it is not 'properly within the
scope of' ICANN's Staff's responsibilities to limit the ability of its
policy bodies, like the GNSO, to make policy decisions?
On what authority does Staff negotiate what is or isn't a "consensus
policy" under Section III.1.(b) of the proposed Registry Contract?
