RE: [council] Motion to approve Internationalized Registration Data Working Group Charter
Thanks Chuck. Would accept the attached amendments as friendly? It removes the "data accuracy and reliability" terminology. That keeps it focused on the issue at hand and lessens the chance that the WG gets off on non-related issues.

Note that it is also posted on the GNSO wiki at https://st.icann.org/gnso-council/index.cgi?24_sept_motions. Chuck Gomes GNSO Council Motion to approve Internationalized Registration Data Working Group Charter 15 Sep 09 Whereas: There have been increasing community concerns that the current WHOIS service is deficient in a number of ways, including data accuracy and reliability, as well as in other technical areas noted in recent SSAC reports, such as accessibility and readability of WHOIS contact information in an internationalized domain name (IDN) environment. On 21 April 2009, the ICANN Security and Stability Advisory Committee (SSAC) published a report titled SAC037 "Display and usage of Internationalized Registration Data" (SAC037) located at http://www.icann.org/committees/security/sac037.pdf. On 26 June 2009 the ICANN Board approved a resolution requesting that the GNSO and SSAC, in consultation with staff, convene an Internationalized Registration Data Working Group (IRD WG) comprised of individuals with knowledge, expertise, and experience in these areas to study the feasibility and suitability of introducing display specifications to deal with the internationalization of Registration Data. In the 26 June resolution, the Board directs the Internationalized Registration Data Working Group to solicit input from interested constituencies including ccTLD operators and the ccNSO during its discussions to ensure broad community input. ICANN Staff in cooperation with members of the GNSO Council and SSAC developed a draft charter for said working group as attached. The GNSO Council: Approves the IRD WG draft charter, and Encourages GNSO constituencies, stakeholder groups and other GNSO participants to identify possible participants of the IRD WG with knowledge, expertise, and experience in these areas to study the feasibility and suitability of introducing display specifications to deal with the internationalization of Registration Data.
