Re: [IFWP] Re: Registrar Constituency of the DNSO taken over by CORE

Richard and all,

  Richard makes some very good points and poses a couple of very
good questions that I as well as the [INEGroup] would like some
answers to and some rectification by the ICANN (initial?) Interim Board.
However I am not holding my breath.

I would also make the following suggestions to the ICANN (Initial?)
Interim Board:  (Note: These suggestions might make some good
potential questions for Congress as well)

1.) That the ICANN Interim Board direct the DNSO NC/PNC to cease and
     desist this sort of activity and offer public apology's to all concerned.

2.) That the ICANN (initial?) Interim Board immediately activate the At-Large
      membership in order to hold nominations (Open to all interested parties),
      a requirement of the White Paper I believe, within 10 working days.

3.) That the ICANN (initial?) Interim Board direct that the DNSO  immediately
      an no later that 10 working days, constitute the DNSO At Large membership
       in order to hold nominations (Open to all interested parties), a
       requirement of the White Paper I believe also. And forthwith hold
       nominations for director positions for all existing or formulating
       constituencies, within 10 working days.

4.) That the ICANN (Initial?) Interim Board, with all due haste, make public
     to the extent possible utilizing any and all public means available,
     an announcement of these measures.
