Agree that it was some members. To make it even more accurate, we should say  

"Some ICG members raised questions about the statement that the current ICANN-IETF MoU "does not specify a jurisdiction" and asked for clarification regarding the legal status of the MoU."

I think the earlier statement was more accurate. The latter sounds a bit promotional and I think you are putting words in Paul's mouth.

> "Discussions among the ICG members clarified that the RIRs do not propose

This is much better. More accurate regarding what was actually said.
