My question is whether the transition plans of these groups actually do need to be shared, or if they can be asked to lay out their plans/requirements independently, for us to then reconcile.  We may find that their differences can actually coexist in the final plan, without breaking anything.

Hi Paul, all,

I think this could be a good way to start (assuming the Names constituencies agree with the stated premise and they think this is a useful approach).  The Names transition plan could then be built up reflecting points of commonality; where there are differences the Names community can then evaluate those for impact and/or necessity.

Based on how the Protocol Parameters and Numbers groups manage these spaces (your Circle ID article was helpful here and I saw a lot of resonance with the Protocol Parameters space), it also seems there might be the base for an evaluation framework as well.
