I suspect they do understand what is plainly obvious but believe consideration of a "way forward" is necessary nonetheless.  Which would be a sound conclusion, given the serious need to broaden both international participation in gTLDs and political support for ICANN.  

With regard to your letter, may I suggest a small and incontrovertibly factual amendment that would be entirely in keeping with your purely informational objective here?  How's about adding the following:  "In light of false information that has been circulated on the matter, the GNSO Council would also like to confirm that the JAS WG simultaneously submitted its Report to ALAC and the GNSO for review."  This is should eliminate the NC opposition to a letter (haven't asked, but believe so).
