On 1/14/2004 3:34 PM Brian Darville noted that:
My understanding was that we would obtain a response to the survey questions from the IETF. I think it makes sense to submit the same questions to all of those surveyed and have them respond.
I think we might be saying the same thing - when I said "feedback" I meant "feedback" in the "respond to the survey questions" sense. Regardless, the questions will need to be modified slightly in that the ENUM working group does not collect data per se, but they are in the process of designing a series of specifications that, when implemented, will require others to do so. Rich is qualified to answer the questions on this basis. We should also request input from him regarding the status of the various drafts to ensure that we are evaluating only those drafts that have received some level of peer review and iteration. As I mentioned, anyone can publish an IETF draft and doing so does not necessarily mean that the proposal is well considered or useful. This approach will ensure that Terry's research is focused and effective.
Then I would reiterate my objection to their inclusion. Verisign is an exceptional creature in the context of the GNSO (as the monopoly provider of .com and .net and former sole source for all gTLDS) and rather unremarkable in all other markets that they play in. If this is the goal, then I propose that we solicit a response from Geotrust (www.geotrust.com) in that they play in two of the same significant markets that Verisign does (PKI and payment processing) without being a player in the gTLD market.
