Dear Milton,

I do have just a few things to add.  First, a correction.

I was premature in stating that the numbering community will be represented on stage by Adiel & myself.  The session flow had not been finalized.  Instead, Adiel and myself, along with other numbering community folks, will mostly sit with the rest of the ICANN community to listen to all the contributions that you and all others have on how such an IANA accountability transition might take place.  Each of us will also contribute only in our own capacities because substantial dialog in the communities have yet to take place.

I believe that I was also premature in saying that Fadi will offer a draft....  The development of the proposal must be led by the community completely.  ICANN staff's role is to gather the input and facilitate dialog by documenting the input and summarizing it when appropriate.  You will hear tomorrow morning that the role of the staff and Board will be considerably different from they way that input is handled for typical topics.

And finally, I apologize if you or anyone else believe that I don't think you also represent the numbering community in a less than significant way.  While you & I might be contributing to this effort so far on your own behalves, you are also doing so as an elected member of the numbering community, which carries with it a recognition of your involvement and contribution thus far.

See you tomorrow.  I look forward to hearing your input in this kickoff session.

These mechanisms must be adopted by the community in a bottom-up, multistakeholder manner for them to be part of a viable proposal.

I am here not only as a member-elected representative of the ARIN and NANOG communities, but also as the Chair of the Address Council of the ICANN Address Supporting Organization.  You will find me next to an RIR CEO on stage tomorrow representing the numbering community reminding everyone what the 2nd "N" in ICANN stands for.
> We recognize that both the ICANN community and the numbering communities each have divergent views.  We will have an opportunity to demonstrate how our multistakeholder concepts are implemented in the RIR system, and how the RIR staffs and Boards are held accountable for their actions.  Perhaps the ICANN community can take the best features and make it work to "globalize" the accountability of IANA functions at ICANN.
