I was unable to be on the call when this discussion took place. (I decided
to grab 2 hours of sleep instead, between 5 and 7 am.)  For the record,
I'll state my strong objection to attempting to drop or change the WHOIS
commitments in the AoC as part of the transition.  This is certainly not
necessary to the IANA Transition or to ensuring that future changes can
take place.  Allowing this to be a subject for the post-transition ATRT
seems reasonable.

>  Today (17-Jul) we reviewed and revised the proposal to bring AoC Reviews
> into the ICANN Bylaws.
>  By my notes, here are the changes we agreed today:
>  Preference for option 2 on team composition, so removed 3-May proposal
> and Option 1.
>  Allow ATRT to *amend* these reviews, too.
>  Add 1 ICANN board member to each review team under option 2.  Note that
> our 3-May draft had a board member on each team.
>  Bruce Tonkin suggested requiring review teams to *Prioritize* their
> recommendations.   We heard several objections to making that a
> requirement, so I added it as a suggestion: "The review team should attempt
> to assign priorities to its recommendations."
>  Remaining challenges:
>  How to give review team access to ICANN Internal documents, while
> preventing disclosure/publication of information that is sensitive,
> confidential, or proprietary?  Do we impose sanctions for unauthorized
> disclosure?  HELP NEEDED HERE.
>  Steve Crocker recommended changing the AoC commitments for
> WHOIS/Directory Services.  We heard some agreement with that idea, but
> strong cautions about attempting to drop WHOIS commitments as part of the
> transition.  Instead, amendments to the WHOIS/Directory Services review
> could be recommended by the first post-transition ATRT.
