[Internal-cg] RFP: IANA Definition

Coming back to the discussion on yesterday's call:

We should refer to source documents in the RFP and not secondary
documents. NB: I totally respect the work of RSSAC on RSSAC067 and it is
a great help. It just does not feel right to use it as a normative

So I propose adding a footnote at the first occurrence of "IANA" like this:

In this RFP "IANA" refers to the functions currently specified in the
agreement between NTIA and ICANN
[http://www.ntia.doc.gov/page/iana-functions-purchase-order] as well as
any other functions traditionally performed by the IANA functions
operator. SSAC067
[https://www.icann.org/en/system/files/files/sac-067-en.pdf] may be
useful reading in addition to the documents constituting the agreement

And then replace "IANA" with "IANA functions operator" wherever that
adds clarity.

Can I have feedback on this?
