I'll add RNA Partners voice of support to Lynn's recommendation for a
broader definition.

My suggestion is that the BC position should strongly support the broader
definition. All Web and Internet statistics use the concept of individuals
who use the Internet -- e.g. who have access to the Internet.  And, I agree
with Lynn [and others] that the AoC intended to refer to that broader


Does the draft need to make all that clearer in its language?

Thanks Steve for this draft and the work of the BC to provide productive


As an member of the Whois Review Team, I would personally appreciate support
from the BC for the broader definition of "consumer" as a global Internet
user rather than the narrow definition that would limit the concept of
consumers to registrants and ICANN stakeholders. 


I maintain that the broader definition is consistent with language in other
sections of the AOC that refer to "public interest" and "Internet users" as
well as the policy requirement for public availability of Whois data.


Also, I believe members of the BC have first hand experience with the UDRP
process and a good understanding of the dependency on Whois data for dispute
resolution.  The BC perspective on this specific need for accurate and
reliable Whois data would be helpful in progressing our work.
