   - Thomas Rickert for the CCWG-Accountability Co-Chairs, We have
   concluded that the Jurisdiction sub-group will take Californian
   jurisdiction as a base line for all its recommendations, and that the
   sub-team not pursue recommendations to change ICANN's jurisdiction of
   incorporation, location of headquarters or seek immunity for ICANN.  With
   this decision we are recognizing that there is no possibility that there
   would be consensus for an immunity based concept or a change of place of
   incorporation.  As such I would establish in the minutes of this call that
   we focus on the solution that gets most traction.  Recognizing that this
   does not eliminate, as I think Avri said during last week's call, that we
   can discuss all issues that might arise during the deliberations.  But that
   we actually focus on the status quo being Californian law and place of
   incorporation. and work on solutions that are founded on this.

SO: Based on the statement above it seem to me that this was decided by the
CCWG plenary and not necessarily by the jurisdiction subgroup. I did not
attend the call but I want to assume the appropriate consensus process was
followed in the decision making process. Nevermind that participation in
WS2 so far has somewhat reduced hence some level of diversity may be
lacking (ofcourse this is probably nobody's fault)

That said, as much as I personally don't see any significant reason for a
change of jurisdiction at this time, I also believe that we should be open
to formally log any issues/concerns that has been identified in our final
report especially if the "only" solution to resolving such issue falls
within the category of what we have barred ourselves from discussing.

We should recognise that those issues/concerns are there and hopefully in
future another group or generation can take it up and find a workable
solution to them (perhaps the issue would have resolved itself by then or
there will be more compelling reason to take nuclear route).
