With all respect - you are answering the question! Sorry if I had not formulated the question properly.

So let me try again.

Is there, in your view, any kind of GAC advice that today (with the current Mission Statement) is within ICANN's mission, but that in the future with the revised Mission Statement as defined in the CCWG 3rd draft report would be outside the revised mission for ICANN, so that the Board does not have the possibility any longer to take the advice into account?

I hope the question is clearer now. There are only two possible answers: yes or no!

>From our latest exchanges regarding the new Mission Statement and as stated in the chat yesterday, DK is of the view that the Board can of course only take decisions based on GAC advice that is within the ICANN's mission.

MM: Thank you for that.

But what we have been seeking is a clear answer to see if the proposed changes to the Mission Statement would imply that the Board in the future would be further constrained in taking GAC advice into account.

MM: Well, it depends on the advice, doesn't it?

I understood from Becky during our CCWG call yesterday, "that ICANN should be able to continue to accept and implement GAC advice as it has been"- in other words the Board will have the same possibility to take into account GAC advice in the future (after the IANA transition) as the Board has today. If that is the case, I would think that it is now crystal clear to me.

MM: As above, if GAC advises ICANN to do things that are outside its mission you can expect challenges.
