Dear all,

Following yesterday's call, some last edits for the section on
GAC-related recommendations:


When deliberating on matters relating to particular entities, give those
entities the opportunity to present to the GAC as a whole, prior to
deliberations, and to answer questions.

Suggested revised text:
When deliberating on matters affecting particular entities, to the
extent reasonable and practical, give those entities the opportunity to
present to the GAC as a whole prior to its deliberations.

Rationale: USCIB's comments likely stem from the GAC's role in advising
on controversial and sensitive new gTLDs as part of the program
currently underway.  In practice, there were a number of constraints on
the GAC's ability to arrange for particular applicants or directly
affected stakeholders to present to the GAC about a particular string or
application.  Among these constraints, were the large number of
applications in the program overall and the consequent large number of
requests made to present to the GAC from both applicants and other
affected stakeholders.  All correspondence or materials received by the
GAC were nevertheless posted for information purposes on the GAC
