Paul, Colleagues:

The following issue was also raised in relation to the Numbers proposal 
in the informal meeting, I have fleshed them out further:

We appreciate the clarification that there is one contract with 5 RIR 
signatories.  In the SLA Principles, paragraphs 5,6 and 7 propose the 
ability to to review and possibly terminate the Agreement with the 
Numbering Services Operator.  Can these rights be applied by each RIR?  
If so, could that result in the multiple SLAs across different 
operators.  Will the SLA address these issues.  Is there any limitation 
on individual RIR rights of exercise?  is there a role for the NRO?

It was agreed that each operational community might choose a different 
jurisdiction, but with 5 RIRs, there are 6 possible jurisdictions 
(including names operator) where the SLA could be interpreted. Could 
this lead to divergent outcomes and lack of predictability?  Will the 
SLA specify a law or set of laws to applied (this includes for 
Arbitration and will Arbitration be binding)?

Finally would it be useful to specify further requirements on paragraphs 
3 and 4 as inputs to the definition of accountability procedures in 
parallel working groups?
