I do not believe that there is any policy or requirement that registrars
offer registration periods of one year.  And it should be noted that not
registrars require one-year registrations.

	Mike, one of the other things that the registry service would do
is effectively introduce the concept of reducing the effective minimum
registration period from one year to one month, without the benefit of
any ICANN policy discussion. That may be worth mentioning in the motion.

		The BC makes the following motion for Council
consideration in our next meeting, and would appreciate a 'second'.  In
sum, we request that the Council ask ICANN Staff to 'slow down' the
process of approving Versign's latest RSEP proposal and accept community
input on it.  Thanks.
		Whereas, Verisign has recently made a proposal for an
additional registry service called "domain exchange" for the .net TLD.

		Whereas, it appears the proposal may permit resumption
of abusive "domain tasting" activities which have been curbed by the AGP
Limits policy, and therefore appropriate limitations on the proposed
registry service must be considered.
		The Council requests that Staff make the preliminary
determination that this RSEP proposal requires further study and public
comment, because it could raise significant issues with security and
stability and/or competition.
