Actually it was Javier that kicked this discussion topic off...

The chairman should be ELECTED, not Appointed by the GA prior
to the Santiego conference so that he/she may adequately prepare and
that that person is properly a reflection of the GA.

I would move this to 9:30 so as to have a vote of confidence on the
pNC/NC as it currently stands by the GA. Again so as to have a
GA that adequately reflects the DNSO GA.

This is unnecessary if as I suggest just above that there be a Vote for selecting
a pNC./NC by the DNSO GA. At that point the current pNC can pass on
any and all information to the NEW pNC/NC for potential review and than
report later to the ICANN (Initial?) Interim Board...

Good idea. This report should than be reviewed by the GA for any amendments
or additions that have been notices by those GA members. Hence this report
might be renamed a "Interim Report" or a Preliminary Report" instead.

I think we can easily dispense with this...

This should be done as I indicated above as a first order of business.

This information should already be completed far prior to the Santiego

Again this information should already be available on the DNSO web site
far prior to the Santiago meeting.
