>    ICANN has called for comments regarding ACDR's proposal to serve as a

>  We circulated Phil's initial draft on 20-Mar.  The BC held a conference

> available on request).
>     As a result of that discussion, the BC is now considering two

>  Version 1:  The existing BC position, with no comment on the merits of
> ACDR's proposal.  This would maintain the present BC position that no new
> providers should be approved until ICANN has standards for UDRP
> administration.
>  Version 2: Amend the present BC position and give "Qualified
> Endorsement" to ACDR's proposal.
> This alternative repeats the BC's prior rationale for ICANN to develop

> to acknowledge that ICANN may approve ACDR's proposal since they have
> acknowledged process concerns, answered questions, and agreed to adopt any
> standards ICANN develops.  The endorsement is "qualified" in that the BC
> requests ICANN to develop standards for UDRP administration, and suggests a
> staff-driven process with community input.
>  Voting:
>  BC members should vote for either Version 1 or Version 2.
>  To vote, please reply to this email indicating your support for Version
> 1 or Version 2.
>  Voting will close on 12-April so that we can submit the comment on
> 13-April.
>  Per our charter, a simple majority prevails and the required quorum is
> 50 percent of paid BC members.
>  As always, members can REPLY ALL at any time to share their views on
