I encourage people who have an interest in this policy, whether in favor or in opposition to make their opinions known on this list. There is still time to incorporate community feedback into revisions to the draft policy before taking it to Vancouver.

Personally, I continue to be skeptical of the idea of using DNS as a 
lever for compliance regarding documentation of reassignments.  However, 
I agree with Owen that the sense of the room at the Philly meeting was 
to continue working on this proposal, and I think important changes 
identified by the community have been made.  I therefore support this 
proposal returning to the Vancouver meeting for additional discussion, 
despite my personal skepticism of the proposal.

While I remain open to persuasion regarding this proposal, and would 
like to see more discussion of it by the community;  At the moment, I 
doubt I will be able to recommend the adoption of this proposal.
