In the flurry of emails running up to the deadline yesterday, two variants
emerged in parallel with a similar message as follows:


1.       Conveying concern of councillors but not necessarily the whole

2.       Not prescribing a solution or seeking a specific outcome or change,
but further consideration.


In the end I opted to send the output that had emerged by combining various
drafts on our list, rather than my own attempt to synthesise.


For the avoidance of doubt, it is included below and you will have seen
Bruce Tonkin's feedback.


Thanks again to all who contributed to producing the output and/or engaging
with this important topic.

Subject: BGC Recommendation on Reconsideration Request 13-3


Dear Board Governance Committee,

                As you may be aware, the GNSO Council has had the
opportunity to review the BGC Recommendation on Reconsideration Request
13-3, which can be found at
on-ncsg-16may13-en.pdf (Recommendation) during its regular monthly Council
meeting on June 16, 2013.   


Although the Council in no way intends to interfere with outcomes of
Reconsideration Requests in general, some Councillors have voiced concerns
with the implications of the rationale used by the BGC in support of the


 These concerns were expressed during the Council call and on the Council
mailing list and centre around the perceived potential impact of the
Recommendation on the GNSO and more broadly, the bottom-up,
multi-stakeholder model.

                We therefore respectfully ask the BGC to thoroughly review
the rationale of the Reconsideration Request and consider deferral of the
publication of the rationale until such time that a more complete discussion
on this matter can take place with the community in July at the ICANN
meeting in Durban.


Jonathan Robinson

GNSO Council Chair
