Thanks Chuck

Yes - the plan is that we have an SLE in place from the start of the transition,
developed by IANA and SLE WG but ICANN/IANA need to be confident that the
thresholds are reasonable and that there is a mechanism in place to review them
after the transition - that the role of the CSC.  
That's the end goal but how to get there......?

In the next month or so the SLE framework should be completed (without
thresholds being specified).

We need to ask NTIA for permission to run tests to help populate the SLE...
which is a pre-implementation phase and community check point (1).
The pre-implementation phase needs to be based on real-world testing and
statistics gathering upon which the thresholds will be determined by IANA
working with the SLE WG.  

The SLE is then completed and before being finalized there will be a short
period of community check point (2) for the purpose of checking that all issues
have been addressed.  The SLE will then be submitted along with the rest of the
proposal to NTIA for review...and if approved progresses to the Implementation

The Implementation Phase will confirm the thresholds are reasonable or identify
which (if any) need reconsideration based on real world experience.  

Post transition the CSC and IANA work together on SLE review.

Hope I've answered your questions.
