One comment, and I am copying Mike on this.

I find the wording regarding educational materials curious.

I presume that what is meant is that the process will take longer 
than if the materials were "developed in house without any community 
involvement". The intent of the recommendation was always for ICANN 
to develop the materials (possibly contracted out of course), but 
that this be done with input from the designated communities, and 
pre-deployment verification.

I would like to think that going forward, ICANN would never consider 
developing this kind of material would some involvement of the 
concerned parties.
