	Subject: [council] Draft reply Council on GNSO reform
	As agreed on yesterday's Council call, I promised to draft a
short paper as a "straw man" listing those recommendations on GNSO
reform that may be supportable by Council as a whole.
	Given the deadline is submission by 30 November I thought I'd
better get a move on.
	Not surprisingly those listed are ones seeking:
	- improvements in policy development and timeline flexibility,
	- improvements in communications,
	- improvements in outreach
	- greater support for constituencies.
	I have left out proposals on structural change suspecting we
will have differing views.
	On working groups, I am proposing a partial support, suspecting
we mostly feel they will work for much policy work, but that tying our
hands to have ONLY working groups for EVERY issue before us would be too
	I hope I have captured areas of potential agreement. Your first
comments please by November 25 after which time I'll edit a proposed
final version.
	Comments can be as simple as  - "yes I/we support" or can be
proposals to strike one of the proposed areas of agreement. In that
case, a word of explanation would be good to share.
