[CCWG-ACCT] way forward and minority statements

I disagree with the opinion (made as a statement of fact, but really an
opinion) that "many" of the P/P proposals and issues "will price an
otherwise unregulated service out of the marketplace."  This strikes me
more as a scare tactic than any kind of rational concern.

And once again, misinformation on the minority position in the PPSAI, also
intended to make it scarier.  First, there is no "minority report," it was
a minority position in the WG.  Second, the actual language under
consideration is "domains used for online financial transactions for
commercial purpose."  So, it's not any financial transaction -- only those
transactions with a commercial purpose. And it's based on actual use of the
domain, so the reference to "will not" is also inaccurate. Far less
