I agree  ...no final decision should be made on this issue.  

The IPC's primary concern is that the ICANN Staff and President will be making a recommendation regarding WIPO II and that the Board could make a decision based upon that recommendation prior to our knowing/discussing the recommendation.  Certainly, we need to have some idea of where the Staff/President are generally coming out on this and more specifically the nature of their recommendation --- particularly since no consensus has been reached on this issue.

This is a pretty serious topic, I agree, as another elected rep. I do
not mind at all that we discuss this tomorrow. I would oppose though
any attempt to rush anything through tomorrow. Be it dismissing the
whole WIPO II request (which my constituency wouldn't mind as such) or
taking some position.  We need serious discussion about this topic,
which cannot be accomplished in one teleconference as such short
notice. I suggest we discuss WIPO II on this list before we make _any_
decision. Thanks.
