sorry for missing the call last Thursday. Here are my personal suggestions
to the issues that a focused letter should raise to the board before their
meeting with the GAC based on comments of the drafting team so far:

1. In the case of the Red Cross et. al., the Copenhagen mediation by a
former Board member made a clear Board resolution possible! The GNSO
council looks forward to a revision of the policy based on this resolution,
as the international law basis for the Red Cross et.al. can be considered
rather homogeneous.

2. In the case to the IGOs, The GNSO’s IGO-INGO Curative Rights Policy
Development Process Working Group is actively reviewing all comments
received on its Initial Report, including the comment submitted by the GAC.
It remains clear from the mediation efforts during the Copenhagen meeting,
that there is still the expectation in the Council that the Boards owes the
GNSO community a clear resolution to direct future efforts in an efficient
way forward, as was the case with the Red Cross et.al.

3. In the case of the delegation of 2-letter codes, some members of the
Council will like to raise serious concerns to the Board, of the impact
that bilateral case by case resolution with Governments could have on the
principle of bottom-up policy development of ICANN. Instead of developing a
consensus position that all GAC members have agreed with, the Consensus
Advice mechanism found in the bylaws is being circumvented to order the
ICANN Board to negotiate with, and presumably reach agreement on, each
government’s individual demands.  This should not be considered proper
“Consensus Advice”, but could rather be considered an attempt to circumvent
the very clear threshold for the GAC to issue “Consensus Advice”.

4. In the case of the Mitigation of the DNS abuse, the GNSO Council refers
to its input to the Board regarding the GAC’s Hyderabad Communique on this
topic, and reiterates the concerns it stated in that response:

I hope it helps.
