Hello Malcolm,

>>  What you are proposing would allow the GAC to participate in that decision, which is an essential step in the process from which you appear to accept the GAC ought to be excluded. This does not seem consistent. 


"The GAC may not participate as a decision-maker in the Empowered Community's exercise of a Community Power to challenge the ICANN Board  
(referred to as the "GAC carve-out"). In such cases, the GAC will still be entitled to participate in the Empowered Community in an advisory capacity in all other aspects of the escalation process, but its views will not count towards or against the thresholds needed to initiate a conference call, convene a Community Forum, or exercise the Community Power.

It is clear that the GAC would not be entitled to participate as a decision-maker to exercise a Community Power including initiating a Community IRP with respect to GAC advice.
