Yes Drazek,


I do recall it and I think that the clarity and precision are necessary
since the definition of the private sector is well known in the
multi-stakeholder system at the global level (World Summit on Information
Society, IGF, etc.) to be the business sector. The stakeholders are
Governments, Private sector (business sector), Civil Society and
International Organizations. 


It is important to precise that the multi-stakeholder model includes all the
stakeholders including private sector and governments. The condition of the
NTIA was that it shouldn’t be government led, and I think we are all in
agreement on that.

chartering process for the CCWG. It is not meant to exclude users or
governments from participation. In this context, it is used to clarify that
the management of assigned names and numbers is "not a governmental

I have a real problem with this. 

There is no doubt that the private sector has been a major and influential
component since its inception, but it is similarly true that governments and
users (albeit in varying models) have been an integral component of ICANN.
Our roles may be different, but our roots go as deep, and the import of the
public interest in ICANN cannot and should not be swept under the carpet.
