Rec 6 motion to be voted on:

WHEREAS, on 8 September 2010 the GNSO Council endorsed GNSO
participation in a joint working group with other interested Supporting
Organizations (SO’s) and Advisory Committee (AC’s) to provide guidance
to the ICANN new gTLD Implementation Team and the ICANN Board in
relation to the implementation of the Council's Recommendation 6
regarding strings that contravene generally-accepted legal norms
relating to morality and public order that are recognized under
international principles of law;
WHEREAS, the Recommendation 6 cross-community working group (CWG) was
established in accordance with the Terms of Reference also approved by
the GNSO Council on 8 September 2010;
AND WHEREAS, the CWG has since delivered a set of recommendations
regarding implementation of the GNSO Council's Recommendation 6 for new
gTLDs to the community;
RESOLVED, the Council thanks the CWG and its participants, from the
GNSO and other SOs and the ACs, for their hard work; and acknowledges
that the CWG recommendations do not constitute Consensus Policy or GNSO
policy development otherwise within the purview of the GNSO;
RESOLVED FURTHER, the Council recommends that each Stakeholder Group
and Constituency provide feedback as soon as possible on the CWG's
recommendations to the Council.
