I apologise for not having reacted  earlier.  One thing that  
contributed to my delay, however, was that the implications really  
became clear to me as the issue was being discussed in LA.  Before  
that I had a nagging feeling of discomfort but could not quite put  
words to it.  It was engaging in conversation during that meting and  
listening to some of the things that were said while in the GAC  
meting that brought that nagging feeling to the forefront and gave it  

I think this is one of the reasons why I felt that the GNSO  council  
should not be in  a hurry to finalise this before seeing what the  
other involved organisations were thinking.    I thought it was  
really good that we had a public draft on the table, but did not see  
the need to finalise it until we had seen the full extent of the topic.

That, and sometimes I am slow and it takes me a while to really  
understand what I am thinking and why, especially when I am busy  
understanding and explaining council's views to the community at large.

Again, apologies for the delay.
