I endorse Bob's admendment, although my rationale is for a different reason
than Bob suggests.
I think as a general rule, Any Registrar statement should agnostic when it
comes to Registrar business models.
I also suspect that trying to invoke sympathy for wholesale registrars will
fall on deaf ears.

Dear Tim: The following is a proposed amendment to the following paragraph
in the present Motion:
Furthermore, presenting anything to the registrant other than the Domain
Name Registration Agreement (or Terms and Conditions) during the
registration process is an entirely new obligation that would require
many registrars to completely re-establish their method of registration. For
wholesale registrars, this represents a highly onerous burden.
I propose that the text, "For wholesale registrars, this represents a highly
onerous burden", be stricken from the Motion.
Discussion: In my opinion, much of the criticism which is directed against
ICANN Accredited Registrars results from the loose connections between said
Accredited Registrars and strings of resellers. It is alleged that some
resellers appoint subordinate levels of resellers and that sometimes these
resellers are unaware of the identify of the Accredited Registrar receiving
their registrations. Still further, it is alleged that some resellers are
acting as resellers for two or more Accredited Registrars.
The persons drafting the Task Force recommendations may well be directing
their criticisms at practices which are not committed by Accredited
Registrars but rather at practices of some but not necessarily all resellers
of a few Accredited Registrars.
end of comments:
I solicit an endorsement (second) to this proposed amendment, namely that
the text "For
wholesale registrars, this represents a highly onerous burden" be stricken
from the Motion.
