Dear Stéphane, Councilors,

I'd like to propose the following motion on initiating Issues Report on
Recommendation 2 of IRD-WG Final Report. Please find the text below as well
as the attached file. As mentioned previously, this Issues Report will be
proceeded with focus on Recommendation 2.

On other 3 technical related recommendations, Staff suggested that it is
unlikely to commit a specific time-line for the technical development. On
the other hand, the IDN gTLD applicant could be put in operational jeopardy
if the community can't come up with a solution timely. Anyway, more generic
wording is used in this resolution here for the purpose of informing
the community that the GNSO will be ready to address the policy changes
created by new technical standards / requirements.

I'd also like to thank the Staff, especially Steve Sheng, for their input
and collaboration.

Best regards,



GNSO Council Motion to Initiate Issues Report on Recommendation 2 of the
Internationalized Registration Data Working Group (IRD-WG) Final Report

October XX 2012

WHEREAS the GNSO Council has reviewed the Final Report and considers that
while expecting the ICANN Board to respond to the SSAC-GNSO joint letter,
the Recommendation 2, translation and transliteration of contact
information of IRD, of the Final Report requires timely action at the
policy level which involves collaboration among domain name registrant,
registrar, and registry. ,

RESOLVED, the GNSO approves the Final Report and requests the ICANN Staff
to prepare the IRD Issues Report on translation and transliteration of
contact information (IRDIR-Rec2). The Issue Report should consider 1)
whether it is desirable to translate contact information to a single common
language or transliterate contact information to a single common script; 2)
who should bear the burden and who is in the best position to address these
issues; and 3) whether to start a policy development process (PDP) to
address those questions.

RESOLVED FURTHER, the ICANN Staff shall provide regular updates to the GNSO
Council on relevant technical development of the IRD, including the
estimated time-line or roadmap of such technical development so that the
GNSO Council and the rest of the ICANN community, particularly the IDN gTLD
applicant, can fully prepare for implementing the IRD features in its
operation. Should there be any policy implication arising from such
updates, the GNSO Council shall, in consultation with SSAC and technical
communities, initiate separate PDP processes based on all available
technical recommendations or standards.
