I too think this is a very important question and would like to understand
what policies are in the bylaws.

It seems to me that policies are NOT bylaws material. Quite the opposite.
Policies are the living body of work that ICANN is about. The bylaws are
about the frameworks within which policy is made.

That said I am still one of the newer participants in this  environment,
and so wonder if there is some part of the bylaws I am missing.
