Paul should speak for himself, but his message simply said he agreed
that ICANN should keep its whole mission in mind when making a
recommendation. He did NOT say he did not support this draft, he did not
propose any specific wording changes, nor did he endorse your proposed
Since your concern seems to be competition, I would call your attention
to the statement in the first paragraph:
"the Task Force recognizes that it is desirable to maintain, insofar as
it is possible, the uniformity of gTLD registrar and registry contracts
to create a level playing field for competition and maintain
predictability for all users of the domain name system."
Let me remind you, again, that this is a DRAFT that will be sent to the
constituencies for comment. This is not a final document. During the
comment period, the registrars, yourself included, can come to an
agreement about what their position is.

If you actually read my posts, as well as Paul Stahura's, this
rewording does NOT appear to have the support of one of the elected RC
reps to this task force nor the alternative RC rep to this task force.
My suggested change is something to the effect:
The General Counsel shall consider the entirety of its mission and core
values in any such recommendation.
I suspect that anyone who cannot accept that change may have another
agenda not completely on the table. I would request that our elected
reps speak up here so that at the very least this difference of opinion
on this issue is included as a minority view in the report to the GNSO

Ok, I have reworded the contentious section in the last few e-mails
Milton's suggested language of "in order to preserve the operational
stability, reliability, security, or global interoperability of the
Internet's unique identifier systems."
With that said, unless I get a strong objection by Monday at 11:59:59
Eastern US time, I will forward the 2 drafts to the GNSO Council.
reason I am doing it this way is that in following the e-mail chain, I
believe with the wording change above, it has support from the
Registries, Noncommercial, IPC and Business Users constituency. In
addition, I believe the ISPs (Tony and Maggie) expressed approval on
Here are the 2 drafts. There have been no changes to the Whois
<<Whois TF Conflict (clean).doc>> <<WHOIS NOTIFICATION.doc>>
As stated in the prior e-mails, we will ask the Council to formally
constituency statements on these reports (20 day period), and then
those statements in a Preliminary Report which will then go out for
