>> In these Examples the Board expressed its desire to change, revise, modify or replace certain parts of a given Recommendations .
>> However, it made an ULTIMATUM that, if such changes, modifications, replacement and ... are not accepted ,it WILL REJECT THESE TEXTS ON THE GROPUND THAT THEY ARE INCONSISTENT WITH PUBLIC INTERTESTS ?
Actually we have raised concerns and suggested a possible solution to each concern. We also noted that "The Board's concerns could be addressed in other ways."
We have highlighted a few areas, as you have noted, where we had strong concerns and we hope that these concerns will be addressed.
We are prepared to actively engage with the CCWG to come up with solutions to the concerns that are acceptable to the CCWG.
>>“Global public interest” should be left to “interpretation” could lead to unpredictable and conflicting results, and the Board sees an important role in helping to define the global public interest as it relates to ICANN’s Mission”
As I noted in a previous post, the Board supports a process that is in ICANN's strategic plan to further define the global public interest in the narrow context of ICANN's mission.
For now we are making reference to how the global public interest is stated in our Articles of Incorporation. ICANN is a public benefit organization, and it is the Board's role to ensure that changes to its rules of operation continue to allow the organization to perform the public benefit as defined in its Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws.
Ie promoting the global public interest in the operational stability of the Internet by
(i) coordinating the assignment of Internet technical parameters as needed to maintain universal connectivity on the Internet;
(ii) performing and overseeing functions related to the coordination of the Internet Protocol ("IP") address space;
(iii) performing and overseeing functions related to the coordination of the Internet domain name system ("DNS"), including the development of policies for determining the circumstances under which new top-level domains are added to the DNS root system;
(iv) overseeing operation of the authoritative Internet DNS root server system; and
(v) engaging in any other related lawful activity in furtherance of items (i) through (iv).
