representatives on GNSO CouncilUpcoming discussions
& votes at 7-Apr GNSO Council teleconferencedraft Council agenda was not yet published as of 9pm ET on 30-Mar.
Motions are posted at http://gnso.icann.org/mailing-lists/archives/council/msg11080.html 
Motion 1:  revising Council procedures for statements of interest
Motion 2: to adopt the Charter for the Standing Committee on Improvement Implementation (SCI)
Motion 3: to accept final report from Joint ccNSO/GNSO Working Group on single-character IDN gTLDs 
Motion 4: regarding WHOIS studies.  Staff posted an analysis of "Privacy & Proxy Relay & Reveal".   Council must decide which of remaining 3 studies (Registrant Identification, Proxy and Privacy "abuse" and this Relay and Reveal study) staff should initiate.  (see http://gnso.icann.org/issues/whois/whois-studies-chart-11feb11-en.pdf )    
John and Zahid worked with staff on a resolution to commit funding for all remaining studies.
After the SFO Council meeting, a small volunteer group met 4 times to discuss WHOIS studies resolution.
Chuck Gomes led the discussion with Kathy Kleiman (PIR), Don Blumenthal (PIR), Liz Gasster (ICANN), Lisa Phifer (ICANN), and Steve DelBianco. 
Here's where we are now:
Kathy and Don feel that the RFP for the Registrant Identification Study (Study 2) needs more definition on how registrants are classified as having 'commercial purpose'.   I support another few weeks of this work, and can explain if needed.
The registries are likely to support our 2 most important studies, with minor adjustments to the studies' scope.  I'm talking about the Privacy/Proxy Abuse study (Study 3) and the Relay/Reveal study (Study 4).   I support these adjustments.
Attached is a modified version of John's Council motion regarding these studies, along with explanations.
I recommend we support the amended motion. 
I also recommend we start lobbying rest of Commercial Stakeholders Group to support this.
Kathy Kleiman will talk with her former colleagues in NCSG and we should also reach out to those Councilors and offer to explain.
The registrars are unlikely to support, but we should offer to explain how this improves the studies and deserves their support.  John's a logical choice for that outreach.--
