Chris - thanks for volunteering.  We all know that time is very tight so I want to outline how I think we could best optimize our time and energy.

As you know there are three main components to the current CWG proposal for the IANA functions: Contract Co; CSC and the MRT, setting the IAP aside, at least for the moment.  I propose that we focus on a variant of the CWG option which does not have, at least immediately, a 'Contract Co', but rather relies on some set of 'triggers' to create the separation of the IANA function from ICANN.  My hope is that we can develop a single proposal for discussion purposes and in this fashion, catch up to the work that has already been done on the full CWG proposal.  With such a focus on 'no Contract Co' we may also be able to set aside, again, at least for the moment, the CSC and the MRT as I believe there is a high degree of consensus that the functions that these two entities would perform are needed, that is operational oversight and periodic review respectively.

This may seem to be a daunting task, but I would remind you that the core of the CWG proposal ran to only just 7 pages in the December 1 proposal.  I think that together we can put something credible together in a reasonable amount of time.

It would be very helpful if the communities and organizations who had significant concerns with Contract Co and who also sought the development of such a proposal could actively participate as I fear it would lack credibility without them.  I am speaking in particular of auDA, SIDN, Google and ALAC.  If I have missed centring anyone out, you are still welcome to volunteer!

Please note this urgent call for volunteers for a sub-group of RFP3.

The sub-group is  required to work together to further develop a variant proposal for the CWG which takes account of proposals and comments received by the CWG, particularly as they relate to a so-called "internal to ICANN" option or variant to the original draft proposal of the CWG.

Allan Mc Gillivray has offered to assist with co-ordination of the group and it will need a committed team to work with Allan in short order to make the requisite progress.
