Subject:	[registrars] New RAA Discussions


In reviewing the nature of possible revisions to the Registrar Accreditation
Agreement with out legal department we've arrived at the conclusion that
some of the revisions that have been suggested would most likely require a
consensus policy process for approval.  Since that process is constituency
driven, not staff driven we believe it would be inappropriate for us to put
forth a prospective new RAA until your input has been solicited.

So, while I know that I have assured many of you that we would try to get
out a model of a new RAA for your review before our meetings in Argentina,
we have decided it would be better to first get your input and
recommendations.  Therefore, I ask that you come to our meeting in Mar del
Plata with your input into the development of a new RAA.  I believe Bhavin
and Tim have set aside time on the agenda for such a discussion.  You might
find it helpful to take the present document and mark it up with suggested
changes or just start from scratch.  ICANN is gradually adopting a different
contract format, which can be seen in some of the newer TLD Registry
Agreements.  We would expect the new RAA to look more like these documents
even if there is no significant change in the provisions.  Of course, the
new RAA will incorporate changes from previously adopted consensus policies
as well.

I am looking forward to seeing you and to many lively discussions at the
upcoming meeting.

Best wishes,

Tim Cole
