[Ccwg-auctionproceeds] Board reply and CoI

Hello all

In thinking more about the CoI issue wrt the board requirement of 
separation between the "strategists" (this group), the "funders" (the 
group that will evaluate proposals and give funds), and the "fundees" 
(the group receiving funds), it appears that the rationales we've used 
in the Board reply:

".. the CCWG is currently operating on the basis that as long as CCWG 
members / participants declare their intention to (potentially) apply 
for the new gTLD Auction Proceeds once the proposed mechanism has been 
approved by the ICANN Board, this provides for sufficient transparency 
and accountability in this stage of the process, as the decisions for 
final funding allocation will not be taking by this CCWG but by the 
mechanism defined."

don't really point to an important reason for the CCWG participants to 
be free of CoI issue at that level: the funding system being designed by 
the CCWG is not going to get approved by the CCWG itself but by the 
Board, the CCWG being only an advisory body sending recommendations, and 
the board holding the final approval.

Is this something we've talked about before and didn't mention in the 
reply on purpose ?

(sorry to come up late in the board reply agenda with that comment, but 
we can probably keep it as one more rationale on our side, in the CoI 
question bucket)
