Stéphane and Adrian,

Yes,  the Issues Report  on Vertical Integration discussed this issue  (see page 24 of http://gnso.icann.org/issues/vertical-integration/report-04dec09-en.pdf).    Because the outcome of a PDP is uncertain (it is possible that no recommendation will be produced or that the PDP will take years to conclude),  the implementation activities will continue to be pursued in parallel with the GNSO's PDP activities.

Best Regards,

Margie Milam

Isn't this what Staff told us in the issues report, that the work Staff are doing on this for the DAG would continue whether (I hesitate to use the term "despite") the Council initiated a PDP or not?

Further to my previous email please see the following from the ICANN website (http://www.icann.org/en/announcements/announcement-4-15feb10-en.htm);

Vertical Integration (aka Registry/Registrar Separation)
Based on debates on the subject held at the ICANN meetings in Seoul, discussion during the consultation with certain community representatives held on 7 January 2010 in Washington D.C., and ongoing study, ICANN will propose for community comment a new registry-registrar separation model for inclusion in the next draft of the gTLD agreement. Additionally, the Board and community members will be discussing the issue in Nairobi.

ICANN are proposing what?


What about the PDP?

I'm still confused!
