Perhaps you might want to give some thought to a few important matters -- 
here's a short list:

1.  we continue to have ongoing violations of inter-registrar transfer 
consensus policy by GoDadddy (through their 60-day lock upon WHOIS change) in 
spite of the April 2008 Advisory on the topic.
2.  there is a need to establish a process to appoint an at-large director
3.  there remains a need for ongoing discussion regarding the proposed URS 
take-down mechanism
4.  The UDRP has never been revised
5.  The "open-the-floodgates" approach to new gTLDs is not a prudent policy
6.  The ability of the Compliance Department to properly scale in light of a 
new TLD roll-out is at issue when they obviously can't manage their current 
7.  The EDDP requires registrars to post on their website the actual fees 
charged to registered name holders for recovering domain names that are in RGP. 
 Close to 500 registrars are in default of their obligations.
8.  We still have no registrants constituency in the GNSO
9.  The registry/registrar vertical integration discussion is far from concluded
10.  There is no GNSO-approved policy regarding proxy registrations.
