The President's Committee was planning to meet earlier this week but
was rescheduled to 8 Feb. In the interim, the version of the IAB
"nextsteps" draft to which John Klensin and Patrik Fältström made
reference during our last meeting will be released. I will post notice
of its availability and suggest that the Council members review it
with a thought to its discussion at our own next meeting (hereby
proposing a corresponding agenda item). Since the President's
Committee will be meeting two days thereafter, we may wish to use the
opportunity to communicate our own recent thinking.

Also, at the two most recent Council meetings reference was made to
the development of an experiment for determining suitable means for
the support of IDN on the top-level of the DNS. Upon listening to the
MP3s of those meetings I note that we failed to make an adequate
distinction between the IAB draft and the outline of the experiment
prepared directly by John. I have therefore (with John's permission)
attached a copy of the latter document to the present message.
