Re: [council] IGO/RC motion
If I understand Avri’s question correctly, then I am wondering the same. Wasn’t
the ICANN board supposed to facilitate some sort of dialogue between the GNSO
and the GAC to reconcile the differences between our recommendations and what
they have stated are their wishes on this topic? Have I missed that?
It seems to me that if the GAC desires further protections for IGOs/INGOs, then
it would be helpful if their reasons and arguments supporting this would be
provided (in some detail) before the PDP WG is asked to reconvene, giving the
WG members something to work with. In that light, I don’t think a postponement
of the motion to a later meeting is such a bad thing.
