[Internal-cg] FW: Further RFP revision

Hi all,

Speaking as the liaison from the IANA functions operator,  please note that
many places in the existing text reference ³IANA² as if it is an independent
entity, which it is not.  For example:

(i.e., those with direct operational or service relationship with IANA;
namely names, numbers, protocol parameters).

No group has a service relationship with ³IANA².  All the service
relationships are with ICANN as the IANA functions operator.

This is just one example.  I have been hesitant to make revisions that
correct this incorrect usage of IANA in the document because of the concern
many have expressed about write privileges for liaisons.  There are many
instances that incorrectly use the term IANA in the RFP.  I am volunteering
to make the corrections in the draft with editing turned, if you are willing
for me to do so.

>   € Maintain the openness of the Internet.
>   € The proposal must not replace the NTIA role with a government-led or an
