[council] Draft Letter from GNSO to Board re WHOIS RT Recommendations

Hi Brian-

A couple of observations on the draft letter:

*         The response only seems to focus on process, rather than substance.  In other words, it focuses on whether a PDP is required, and not whether the various Stakeholder Groups/Constituencies  agree with or endorse the recommendations.   Is this intentional?   The Board is likely to be more interested in the substantive response, although the procedural one seems to be the focus of the response.

*         With regard to  the response to Rec 12 (...that ICANN form a working group to determine IDN registration data requirements....)

"There were five (5) responsive members of the SG; 80% agreed that a PDP was not required to implement this recommendation."

Please note that this may need to be revised if the IRD WG Motion on the Council's agenda tomorrow is passed, because the PDP that would be started would be addressing this very issue.

Dear Councilors,

As was discussed in Saturday's session with regard to the WHOIS RT work, attached please find a draft letter to the ICANN Board detailing our various constituencies' recommendations as to whether a PDP would be required for certain WHOIS enhancements.

We appreciate your prompt attention to this matter and look forward to hearing your views so that we may move forward as soon as possible with providing our communication to the Board.  Thank you.

Best regards,
