I believe it is possible that you misread the quote:

It was that those changes that legal counsel made to the document, that were purely cosmetic, e.g. commas, spelling corrections, numbering, expanding Nomcom to Nominating Committee, should just be accepted.


added in this reposting:

Also I might add that this was a review we had requested on changes we were considering as recommendations to the Board. The reason we asked for the review was to insure that our requested changes were within the law as understood by ICANN's Legal counsel.

Wow. I think it is great that ICANN thinks that operating within the law is purely cosmetic. I sure hope they do not take off their makeup, so we can see what they are really doing.
