Hello Mathieu,

>>  Thank you Bruce, could you please clarify whether this text has been
discussed / approved with RSSAC ?

I discussed with the co-chairs of RSSAC, who in turn discussed at an RSSAC
meeting last week.

Their advice following their meeting was:

*	For the coordination role we propose and fully support -
"Facilitates coordination of the operation and evolution of the DNS root
name server system."  RSSAC believes that this captures, at the right
level of abstraction, ICANN's current coordination role accurately.

*	For ICANN's current operational roles, RSSAC suggests that if
ICANN desires a description in the bylaws, it should be independent of the
aforementioned italicized language.  RSSAC believes language dealing with
operational roles should be separate because RSSAC does not have the
mandate to designate ICANN's operational roles. As an advisory committee
to the board, we remain neutral to the scope of ICANN's current
operational roles with regard to DNS root name server operations.
