[CWG-Stewardship] v1 Final Proposal

I'm reading through this, and there is one thing I note repeatedly
that nags at me: there continue to be parts of this that suggest the
"naming functions" IANA people are transferred to PTI, and the
document isn't terribly clear what happens to the other functions.

This is not completely consistent throughout the document.  For
instance, Annex M seems to be imagining a wholesale transfer of IANA
operations from one operator to another (but leaves out details of
non-naming functions, as is appropriate for the document).

I thought the agreement was that the CWG proposal imagines moving all
IANA functions to PTI.  The other communities can of course continue
their agreements with ICANN, which is going to subcontract all the
IANA functions to the PTI.  The other communities have been clear that
they don't see a fundamental conflict here, which by implication means
that they do not think there is anything preventing such a subcontract

I think the proposal needs to be clear that it proposes to move all
the IANA functions to PTI, but that it remains mute on the precise
details of how that will work for all the non-naming functions.  I
don't see how we can propose anything else, for if we do we are
essentially proposing to break up the IANA functions across two
operators.  I don't think we actually want to make that proposal,

Apologies for today's meeting; I have grave doubts that I'll make any of it and I will certainly miss the first hour.

Best regards,
