With all due respect Avri, this is exactly what I consider the problem of
ATRT1 and I hope we can improve it this time: *Its ICANN-centric perspective

We have a wider participation of public servants, as the still unsent
letter shows, and we tend to see ICANNs legitimacy based on its ability to
convince Governments, every single day, that they are doing their best in
taking into account its considerations, independently if through (a
definition) of GAC in the By-laws, or directly from Governments themselves
or through a meta-definition of public interest.

Luckily ICANN has today a CEO that, is taking its outreach to Governments
very seriously and consulting them more widely than GAC itself sometimes
does (due to lack of time of course). GAC has a full paragraph dedicated in

*(b) assessing the role and effectiveness of the GAC and its interaction
with the Board and making recommendations for improvement to ensure
effective consideration by ICANN ofGAC input on the public policy aspects
of the technical coordination of the DNS;*

For that reason I support Jorgens very diplomatic language. I would be more
blunt: my reading of 9.1 is that if GAC-BOARD relations are not effective,
Governments should consider other channels to put their thoughts forward.

I hope you all have a nice weekend!
