During our CWG meeting last week, we were unable to deal fully with the
topic of the CCWG on ICANN accountability in so far as it is directly
relevant to the work of this group.

In particular, confirming the process to deal with the fact that the CWG
Stewardship response to the ICG is expressly conditioned on the CCWG
Accountability proposal.


The CCWG have had a formal update
-progress-made-in-and-after-icann54-in-dublin>  out for a while now, ahead
of publication of their 3rd draft proposal which is due out on Monday,
November 30th.


We propose to utilise the services of Sidley Austin to confirm that the CCWG
Accountability proposal does indeed meet the conditionality requirements of
the CWG Stewardship. As you will recall, Sidley reviewed the previous CCWG
proposal and assisted similarly.


Moreover, we propose to undertake this work in two stages:


1.      Review the CCWG proposal put out for public comment and then submit
confirmation to the public comment that the CCWG proposal does meet the CWG
conditionality (if indeed it does) and 

2.      Confirm that the final proposal (to be prepared following the public
comment period) continues to meet the CWG conditionality  (if indeed it


We believe that by working in this way, we will be able to


A.     Assist the CCWG by clearly communicating our position at the key
stages. As we have done throughout the course of their work

B.     Assist the CCWG chartering organisations at key stages of their
processes such that the they will be able to review the proposal and make
their respective decisions with clear knowledge of the CWG position.


We look forward to working with the CWG on this and other matters over the
forthcoming weeks.
