[council] Domain Tasting - Follow up on possibility of fee application through interim or special budget process

I don't know about the interim measures, but I believe that modifying
the budget mid-year would still require the Staff to go back to
registrars and allow them to vote again on how they want to pay - ICANN
directly or ICANN through Registry invoicing. That would take additional
time and could run up against the end of the FY anyway.

Also, for the design team discussion, we should keep in mind the likely
timing of any consensus policy that may come out of the Tasting PDP. I
don't see how any such policy could be developed, recommended, commented
on, and approved before the Paris meeting in June. Then allowing for
implementation time I don't think it would become policy until sometime
after the new budget goes into affect.

My understanding of what Denise said was that ICANN is proposing to levy
the per-domain fee as part of the standard budget cycle which would put
it in place starting July 2008. I heard nothing today about any interim

Our discussion today of application of the ICANN fee to names deleted
during AGP focused on the regular ICANN budget cycle.  I had understood
from our 31 October meeting that it may be possible to pursue levying
the fee through an interim or special budgeting process, and that we
would receive from staff further information about that possibility and
a potential timetable.

I don't recall receiving any further information.  Did we receive it? 
If so, would someone please point it out for me?  If we didn't, I
believe it would be helpful to have before Delhi.  To the extent it can
be provided quickly, it would be especially helpful for the design team
to have before Delhi.
