[CPWG] [GTLD-WG] Fwd: FW: Draft Comment on RA Renewals

Thank you for your kind words and helpful comments.
Unfortunately, the “party” got rained out. The CPWG decided not to approve
this statement, whether it covers all the renewals or is limited to .ORG.
So nothing is being sent to the ALAC for their consideration. I think it’s
a good statement, and it would be made better with your suggestions. I am
considering revising this draft, cutting the subject back to .ORG and
submitting it individually. Also, circulating it for others to submit —
either individually or with multiple signatures.
In particular, I am concerned there are a number of comments being made
that tend to denigrate PIR and ISOC. This is something I would like to
counter. [Full disclosure: I am the President of ISOC-NY (an At-Large
Structure) and participate here in that capacity. However, I have not yet
asked the ISOC-NY Board to consider endorsing this statement, so I am
discussing it here in my individual capacity.]. I honestly think much of
what has been said about PIR and ISOC has been untrue or exaggerated and
fails to to give credit to ISOC for its mission and unique place in the
I believe that PIR was hoping for a comment along the lines of our first
draft (which I believe they saw on our site) or our second draft. I’m not
comfortable leaving PIR and ISOC to be “thrown under the bus” by
ill-informed and prejudicial comments. If ALAC will not comment (or more
precisely, if the CPWG wont send ALAC a draft comment for their
consideration), then it behooves those who support this statement to submit
it or use it as a basis for their own comments.
