[CWG-Stewardship] Do we need an extra scenario given the requirements formulated by the CCWG-Accountability ?

Hi Jordan,

If I understand it correct, you see a relevant difference between the ICANN community and the Global Stakeholder Community that should be represented in the MRT. Could you please explain who you think is missing bearing in mind that we are talking about the naming part of the IANA Function ? Is that only the ccTLD's that are not member of the ccNSO ?

Hi all

I don't think this works. The ICANN community is what would have the overarching responsibility here. That's not the same as the global multistakeholder community which is where the IANA functions are going, and it is not a legitimate proxy for it.

The work of our accountability CCWG might help improve the IANA accountability situation, but shouldn't in my view replace your work to develop a robust distributed stewardship model for the IANA functions - something an internal-to-ICANN solution can never deliver.

I have read the CCWG-Accountability Chairs’ statement and wonder if we should not also discuss a scenario for the situation where the CCWG-Accountability will be successful in reaching their first requirement:

“Enabling community empowerment over ICANN Board decisions with limited, strictly enumerated, last resort powers;"

As far as I understand, these last resort powers are meant to include the powers with regard to the IANA functions. I figure that if the community will already have the final say over the IANA functions through these last resort powers, that:

1. There will be no need for an external solution where the same community will be given the final say over the IANA functions;

2. There is no need for an MRT;

3. There might be a need for a CSC (maybe a CSC plus);

But maybe I am oversimplifying things here ?
