Keith, thanks for your suggestion.
While I see some problem in confining our commitment of human right to
only two of them and think there are issues with rights such as, for
example, assembly/association, fair and equal treatment, and due
process, I could personally accept this wording for WS1 as it does base
itself on wording that NTIA included.
I would need, however, for the paragraph (as included in your message)
to be included in the bylaws and for there to be a commitment to further
work on human rights in WS2 to discuss the other human rights and the
methods by which we would fulfill this WS1 bylaws commitment.

However, if we don't reach consensus for adding to the Bylaws, I definitely think this is worth further consideration in WS2 and would support an explicit reference using this or similar language and timetable for doing so.
