On 19 May 2015, the number community provided specific feedback regarding the need for alignment on the IETF trademark and domain (see attached email from Izumi to the CWG call for comments).  

Did you notice that the most recent draft (v5) for discussion that came out yesterday morning specifically moves farther away from this direction, leaving these marks in ICANN rather than moving them to the IETF Trust?

CWG email re new draft - -<http://mm.icann.org/pipermail/cwg-stewardship/2015-June/003650.html>
Draft Document - <http://mm.icann.org/pipermail/cwg-stewardship/attachments/20150609/aea1179e/FinalTransitionProposal_v5-Redline-commentsandeditsfordiscussion-0001.docx>

Proposed text in most recent document -

> " ICANN grants to PTI an exclusive, royalty-free, fully-paid, worldwide license to use the IANA trademark and all related trademarks, and all applications and registrations therefor, for use in connection with PTI’s activities under the ICANN-PTI Contract. “

this moves the draft farther away from the received comments, and would this make the ICG’s job of aligning the various proposals from the affected parties into a cohesive plan even more difficult?

 It might be premature to go to BA with this as an accepted direction, without concurrence from the affected parties.
