[gnso-rds-pdp-wg] [renamed] Key early questions

Hi Kathy,

As has been discussed earlier in the process, the idea behind the process
framework and the charter is that the PDP is expected to take a forward
looking / clean slate approach (which may also provide some further
insights into why the order of the questions was suggested as it is). This
is one of the reasons, as I understand it, that a review of what is
currently collected and why and whether it is subject to data protection
laws is not included as a requirement in the charter as the idea is that
the WG is expected to start with a clean slate and define requirements
based on its review of issues such as users/purposes, data elements,
privacy, etc. As you may have noted in the draft work plan, the leadership
team has proposed to group the three issues of user/purposes, data
elements and privacy together as it is clear that the consideration of
these topics will need to be done in an iterative way taking into account
the interlinkage of these topics.

Best regards,
