Dear Kavouss,

I provide some answers inline, with the purpose to clarify where matters 
are currently handled.

None of these memos is intended to be a direct work product of our 
group. However legal advice will provide during our call a general recap 
of their views, and you (and other colleagues) will have the opportunity 
to ask questions.

We will provide this question to the legal advisors, through the legal group

This point is currently being discussed within WP1 proposals. I am sure 
they will consider this input.

This item is on our agenda today, so we'll have the opportunity to 
exchange during the session.

This point is currently being discussed within WP1 proposals. I am sure 
they will consider this input.

I suppose you also refer to WP1.

The "fundamental Bylaw" concept was introduced in Singapore and 
confirmed during the CCWG call that ensued. WP2 is tassked with 
definition and scoping of that concept we are introducing. I am 
confident their input will address your question.

I hope that is helpful to clarify.
