Thanks Tony:

One other thought.

At the second to last paragraph I would insert a new paragraph that reads:

"The ISP community must be a central part of the PDP process and any process
that evaluates any future registry service offering.  If they are not
explicit participants in the process, they must be able to participate by
identifying appropriate expert analysts who can represent the operational
interests of ISPs."

What do you think?
