It sounds like much discussion and progress has been made on Whois this 

This is a good thing.

However, I would ask that we don't seek to actually take a decision on 
this matter tomorrow. Those that are physically participating in the 
meeting have had the benefit of a very immersive experience in which 
they have been able to take in a lot of data on a very near full-time 
basis. Those of us not attending the meeting have not had this same 
luxury. I would like to be able to participate in taking this decision 
from an informed basis, but have not yet had a chance to wade through 
the relevant recordings, transcripts and submissions.

Discussion of this proposal is definitely warranted, but I don't think I 
could adequately represent the needs of my constituency, in terms of 
making a decision, based on what I know now. I would appreciate the 
opportunity to consider more of these inputs before I actually voted on 
anything this important during a meeting that will be held in just over 
12 hours time.

Thanks in advance for your consideration.
