Dear colleagues,

Attached please find ICC task force Chair and Vice Chair's informal
comments on the draft EoI proposal. It has been submitted to ICANN
today, and it urges public discussion on the proposal at the ICANN
Nairobi meeting. 
Thus, it is consistent with Steve's proposed comment from the BC.

Kind regards,

Comments are due today.  We don't have time for a formal vote on a BC
position on the EOI, so ours would have to be a consensus comment.

Would everyone support a simple statement along these lines?

Before the Board votes on whether to proceed with the EOI, it should
resolve the ambiguity about what the EOI is designed to accomplish.  Is
EOI just a data gathering exercise, or is it a mandatory

Once we understand that threshold question, the community can address
details of the EOI plan, in a brief public comment period followed by
discussions in Nairobi.
