CCWG intends to at least have this commitment in place in WS1, since it isn't explicitly stated anywhere. The framework of interpretation, to be developed in WS2, will make clear how we go about the implementation. In the mean time, ICANN's obligations to obey domestic law (applicable law) continues, unchanged.
