I would characterize the prelim report more toward "no apparent
recommendation" (as in your pdf file) as opposed to "The 75 page
document makes many recommendations" (as in your email below).

Late yesterday evening ICANN staff released the Preliminary Report
discussing the findings of Whois Task Forces 1, 2 & 3.
ICANN's bylaws require the creation of this report in order to provide a
basis for further discussion of what elements of the recommendations
have super-majority, or majority support of the task forces. Based on
these discussions, a final report will be prepared and issued for public
comment and forwarded to the GNSO Council for further consideration.
In order to better inform myself regarding the work of the task forces,
I have conducted an analysis of the recommendations (attached) from the
perspective of whether or not the task force recommendations actually
answered the questions posed by the original terms of reference or not.
The 75 page document makes many recommendations, but as you will see
from the attached analysis, very few of these recommendations actually
answer the original questions posed.
As a member of these task forces and as one of your GNSO Council
representatives, I would like to hear your input regarding what next
steps might be appropriate. I have a few ideas myself, but I'll keep
them to myself for the short-term in order to get a cleaner commentary
from the membership of the constituency.
Please feel free to share your ideas on this list, via email directly or
via telephone. I'm not leaving for Argentina until later this week and
will have some extra time to discuss these important matters with you.
Additionally, if you notice any deficiencies or discrepancies with the
analysis, please let me know. My prep time was extremely limited and I
may have missed some important elements that should be included.
Thanks in advance,
