[CCWG-ACCT] New ICANN Bylaws

In regard to this -- 'The Board is committed to working with the community to identify the portions of the CCWG-Accountability recommendations that can be implemented in the event that it is determined that ICANN's obligations to perform the IANA Functions will remain under contract with NTIA." -- why wouldn't all of them be implementable regardless of whether the transition occurs? That's a very carefully phrased statement that does not commit the Board to implementing any of them; it's just a commitment to have a dialogue with the community that designed the recommendations if the transition is delayed.
I'm having difficulty identifying a single new accountability measure that can't be implemented in the absence of the IANA transition. I am not and have not advocated for a delay, but just don't see how one is connected to the other so far as implementation goes (I understand the political connection, of course).
I hesitate to rain on the parade on what is a very important and overall positive development for the ICANN community, and I'm not advocating that the accountability improvements take effect before October 1. But these are needed improvements on which the community demonstrated strong consensus support.

Here is the language from the Resolution on the effective date:
"Resolved (2016.05.27.02), the New ICANN Bylaws will be deemed effective upon the expiration the IANA Functions Contract between ICANN and NTIA.
The Board reaffirms its Resolution 2016.03.10.18, stating, 'The Board is committed to working with the community to identify the portions of the CCWG-Accountability recommendations that can be implemented in the event that it is determined that ICANN's obligations to perform the IANA Functions will remain under contract with NTIA.¹"
