So long as the 'applicable law' clause remains, ICANN will have NO legal 
obligations to respect human rights, post transition, on a literal 

Therefore the proposed addition, whilst harmless, is perfectly otiose.

There are many lawyers involved in proposing the 'applicable law' language.

I cannot believe you do not know that there is NO 'applicable law' once 
ICANN is no longer an instrumentality of the state.

Otherwise please give an example of a single legal provision on human 
rights that would fall under 'applicable law'.

Just one.
