Nigel, I would also like to call attention to the submission from Jimson Olufuye, member of the CSTD WG EC, which proposes

an approach that is much aligned with CSTD's purpose and would offer an alternative: Jimson will be attending ICANN59.

Perhaps we can talk to  him in person about his proposal. It does not offer a change in IGF, or any other mechanism but enhances

the informational role of CSTD, which, after all, is in line with its mission.
