Hi all

I largely agree with Steve delB and Avri in this thread, but just one
thought further:

I thought the explicit rationale for the CCWG's work was to deal with
developing an accountability settlement for ICANN in the environment that
will exist after the expiry of the IANA functions contract.

So I am not sure which of those two perspectives it fits into - it feels
like the second half of your first perspective, Steve.

As one of the people on this list with the 'shortest' memory of ICANN, but
a much longer memory and experience of ccTLD governance in a case that
replicates many features of the ICANN environment, I'm def interested in
the future.
