All, sorry to miss all the fun yesterday.  I have come to see the wisdom of 
what David wrote.  As much as I would like to debate the purposes of WHOIS 
(which I raised) and see value in Tim's concerns, I think we must move forward to 
the work of the TF.  The "purpose of WHOIS" was an issue raised late in the 
game, after the close of data gathering, by George Papapavlou in Rome.  
Reluctantly, I agree that it is a bit outside our scope and certainly outside our time 
frame right now.

For Monday's call, I support the two topics of discussion Tom Keller has put 
forth:  "1.) Icann whois regulation and local laws/regulations  2.) Tiered 
access model (Registrars/ALAC)"  (I am not sure I agree, or even fully 
understand, the questions raised by Marilyn, so I would like to start with the questions 
as raised by Tom (the big picture) and then work together to define the 

I would like add a number 3.) Data Element Publication (Registry/NCUC/ALAC)
Regards, Kathy
