I agree with Matt, need to be very careful to not start wandering, on the sub issues that are relevant definitely but on the broader issues I would advise exercising caution.

Hi Olivier, all

The NTIA call for inputs makes for interesting reading as background for WTSA, but we have to think very carefully about whether it is appropriate or not for ICANN to submit  comments.  If there are DNS related matters, perhaps - but this is something we should discuss further and not take lightly given community concerns about scope and mission.

Thanks for this Matthew. Indeed, you mentioned it on the call.
I'll add it to the WIKI page.

Question 1: does this WG wish to submit a text at this point in time, in the ICANN context?
Question 2: is ICANN planning on submitting a comment to this call for input?

Kindest regards,

Can't recall if this was circulated already on this list but see this request from NTIA for thoughts/comments on WTSA:

Hello all,

following up on today's conference call and as this is likely to be a
hot topic for the working group in the forthcoming months, I have
created a WIKI page on the World Telecommunication Standardization
Assembly (WTSA16). This can be accessed on:

Please use this page to add more information about the process, the
contents, the preparations, threats, opportunities, calls for action
etc. We are likely to use this page as our core workspace for any
matters pertaining to this important thread. Please also suggest more
links that could go on this page.

Kindest regards,
