The Council motion also addressed the timing issue, prioritizing the work by
putting this PDP on a very quick path to completion.  


Hearing from Staff that it will take ‘years to conclude’, at the outset, is
disheartening and has no basis in fact.  Council’s track record on PDPs in
the past few years indicates that they go much faster than that, as Staff
ought to be well aware.

Stéphane and Adrian,


Yes,  the Issues Report  on Vertical Integration discussed this issue  (see
page 24 of
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,

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


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!
