This is not a formal statement of the ALAC which has not had the 
opportunity to act on the current discussions, but is the position of 
the advisory group that has been formulating the positions previously 
ratified by the ALAC.

There are those within the group that have expressed concern with ANY 
reduction from 4 to remove the Board (as evidenced by the minority 
statement submitted by Tijani). There are also some who have 
expressed an overall concern with the entire "GAC Carve-out".

Those views notwithstanding, the majority of participants in the 
group supported the carve-out along with the restrictions specified 
by the Board and incorporated into the current supplemental proposal 
as an acceptable compromise. Based on Sam Eisner's recent 
intervention, that is still the proposal on the table.

Neither the ALAC nor the advisory group has discussed Steve's final 
proposal, but I suspect we would also agree to defer specification of 
some of these details to implementation, if a way could be found to 
word and ensure that commitment.
