I do not see why using a well established list and giving it a new/ 
continuing purpose is unprofessional.

A reason for suggesting it is that this list proved itself capable of  
civilised and productive working methods with minor exceptions and  
his list already includes much of the ICANN skill set on these IDN  
issues.  This list is also composed of people who have shown  
themselves to be interested in the issues and capable of working on  
the issues.  So it seemed like a possible solution that save everyone  
a bit of work in terms of building a new list.  In a sense we are  
continuing to discuss the same issues that this group of people  
worked on, and it seems reasonable to continue that list as opposed  
to designing a new wheel.

However, if the council thinks that creating a new list is a better  
proposal that too would be a professional approach.
