GNSO Council Faces Difficult Choice

The ICANN GNSO Council is on the horns of a dilemma: will they choose a Task Force or a Committee of the Whole to handle their new Policy Development Process on the policy considerations raised by the .com agreement? This is no small question, as deciding to convene a Task Force will mean drawing participants from the respective constituencies -- and several of the constituencies have absolutely no active members other than the Council reps themselves.

"I want to better understand the pros and cons of a Council of the whole versus a TF. I am not convinced that a TF will improve the conflicts of time for Council, since there are overlapping issues between the two PDPs. I would instead propose that Council examine the appointment of up to three experts for both PDP processes."

One has to wonder where these three DNS Policy "experts" will be found...
