I have put this on the list of topic for our next agenda.  It might be  
worth having some preliminary discussions on list.

- ALAC letter: <http://gnso.icann.org/mailing-lists/archives/council/msg04857.html 
- Discussion under 11 Other business: <http://www.icann.org/minutes/prelim-report-27mar08.htm 
 >   Board's Disposition:  "The Chair determined that emergency action  
is not required today but the matter will be referred to the GNSO for  
additional information or policy development if necessary, but not an  
emergency action."

My first questions:

- Do we want/need to request an issues report?
- Do we want to request advice from SSAC on the degree to which this  
is a threat to Stability and Security as stated in the ALAC letter.   
SAC22 of Oct 07 <http://www.icann.org/committees/security/sac022.pdf>   
spoke of it as being possibly contrary to core values but I do not  
read their report as calling it a threat.  Though the report does seem  
to indicate that further investigation of issues surrounding the  
practice could be investigated further.
