Thank you Rafik and Stéphane.

Stéphane just to be clear: are we now facing a voting circumstances (moving
meeting time or not)? Personally I am open --  but if we are moving the
regular call to later date then I think we need a good reason -- given ICANN
has already allocated extra staff resource to support JAS work. I very much
agree with Adrian on reviewing the current draft so we can help get
necessary input from our SGs.
