I really hope the Board invests in a dictionary. Ad-vise is in ad-
dition to a vis-ion. An ad-vis-or is given something to look at, and
_adds its views_. It does not set its own agenda, and the ICANN
board had damn well better prove to be responsible for what the
GAC considers or it will lose its license. Frankly, I was going to
suggest you re-view (even re-vise) the minutes of the 8/12 meeting
before they were posted, but it sounds as if its too late for that.
In any case, from your selective response, I infer that the answers
to the antecedent questions

are "I am not aware of any reason," "Yes" and "No." Are those
correct? Will it then be correct to infer that the Board will have no
reason -- unless the GAC gives it one, extemporaneously -- to
consider a GAC report on the cited points at the meetings of 8/25-
26? If, on the other hand, the Board does consider it, will that
report be posted according to Art III, Sec 3(b), "With respect to any
policies that are being considered for adoption that substantially
affect the operation of the Internet or third parties..., the Board
will... provide public notice on the Web Site explaining what
policies are being considered for adoption *and why*..."?
