Hi All,
Do I understand correctly that we are putting out a 100+ page report on 
a complex subject for review by the ICANN Community - and world 
community - *before Buenos Aires*??  That seems awfully tight if we want 
substantive comments - and the outreach to participate -- that a WG 
presentation/discussion in Buenos Aires would encourage (and the web 
presence it would create). We (in the WG) have talked about these issues 
a lot - but have others outside our WG followed these them with so many 
other things in motion?

In the Whois Review Team we heard a lot of complaints from individuals, 
organizations, data protection and law enforcement offices that ICANN's 
proceeding are difficult to follow and even more difficult to 
participate in -- in large part because the rapid comment timeframes are 
not conducive to global outreach or the timelines needed to encourage 
substantive and thoughtful comments (especially by government entities). 
We issued a recommendation that on Whois issues, in particular, we have 
to do more...

*WHOIS Review Team Final Report**
*/Recommendation 3 - Outreach//
/ICANN should ensure that WHOIS policy issues are accompanied by 
cross-community outreach, including outreach to the communities outside 
of ICANN with a specific interest in the issues, and an ongoing program 
for consumer awareness.

I think we should allow two months to respond -- at a minimum.
