During our meeting Friday I was asked to analyze public comments on Recommendation 1 to see whether there was anything other than Purpose O (research by ICANN) that needed to be considered.

As you can see from the attached spreadsheet, the answer is a simple No. There is only one new purpose proposed, namely George Kirikos's proposal for collecting data to establish the ownership history of domain names. But this did not obtain support from any other commenter or from people within the EPDP.

All other requests for "additional" Purposes were either covered by existing purposes and recommendations (usually Purpose 2 but also Purpose 5 and Recommendation 7) or were variations on the "research" purpose which we considered. Several other comments did not propose new purposes at all but rather made comments about Purposes already proposed in the initial report; e.g., the request by RySG to clarify to which party (ICANN, Registries, Registrars) purposes were attributed.

Regarding the "Research" purpose, as we discussed Friday it is not clear whether it is needed until ICANN's role is specified. As Ruth stated, if ICANN is the controller for registration data it can use the data for research anyway. I would conclude that in responding to public comment we can use this analysis as the basis for our response.
