<p><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><b>Jordyn Buchanan </b>proposed working 
  on the timeframe along the milestones as set out by <b>Thomas Keller.</b><br>
  </font><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><b>Milestone 1 </b><br>
  a.) Extract and comment RAA provisions relevant to registrant notification and 
  consent regarding data collection and processing. <br>
<p><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"> To be done by: ICANN Staff - [one 
<p><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">b.) Contact the top 10 registrars 
  (and their resellers) to document implementation of these provisions. <br>
  Staff survey of registrars and the disclosures on their website, with the addition 
  of a select group of resellers</font></p>
<p><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">To be done by: ICANN Staff, Top 10 
  Registrars - [week of 12/22]<br>
<p><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">Questions to be prepared by next 
  call December 15, 2003</font></p>
<p><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">c.) Request statements from registrars 
  d.) Public comments relating to outliers [4 January, 2004]</font></p>
<p><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><br>
  <b>Milestone 2</b> <br>
  a.) Documentation of all relevant data elements.<br>
  Brief historical survey <br>
  To be done by: ICANN Staff [one to two weeks]<br>
  b.) Consideration of the current data elements under the following aspects: 
  Use <br>
  Necessity <br>
  Concern/ or view? <br>
  ALL CONSTITUENCIES look at survey data. [January 15 responses]<br>
  c.) New additional data fields</font></p>
<p><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">Use <br>
  Necessity <br>
<p><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"> ALL CONSTITUENCIES Distribute constituency 
  requirements next call Monday 15 December [January 15 responses]</font></p>
<p><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">Comment from Kathryn Kleiman:</font><br>
  <font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">I renew my call in Milestone 2 for 
  a second round of public comment to "c) New additional data fields." It is impossible 
  to respond to a suggestion that has not yet been made. Some constituencies will 
  make suggestions for new data fields. Others will need to respond. Consistent 
  with other "reply comment periods," the second round can be much briefer than 
  the first round. In addition, we are not talking about public comment, but returning 
  to the Constituencies. Overall, a brief and narrow reply comment period is called 
  for here. <br>
  <b>Milestone 3 </b><br>
  a) Examine technical mechanisms to limit or differentiate data. <br>
  Request input from task force 1, and then determine if follow up. <br>
  NOTE: fact-finding for 4d) likely required first.<br>
  <b>Milestone 4 </b><br>
  a.) Documentation and commentary of existing methods of "proxy" registrations 
  or mechanisms providing anonymous presentation of data, and their policies for 
  allowing review and disclosure of domain name registration information. </font></p>
<p><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">To be done by: ICANN Staff led, but 
  not limited to suppliers, Constituencies, CCNSO, GAC [Jan. 15] <br>
  b.) Extract and comment Registrars Accreditation Agreement (RAA) provisions 
  relevant to WHOIS access. (Encompass all the relevant sublicensing of names.) 
  To be done by: ICANN Staff - should be done by ICANN legal Counsel<br>
  c.) Documentation of local privacy laws with the help of the GAC and the CCNSO 
  and also using existing legal compilations and commentary. </font></p>
<p><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">To be done by: ICANN Staff, GAC, 
  CCNSO, existing legal compilations and commentary; public comment <br>
  d) Technical means available to registrars and registrants to allow registrants 
  to remove data elements from public access. <br>
  To done by: <br>
  - registrars, <br>
  - outreach to task force #1, and <br>
  - technical fora .<br>
