ICANN Staff Authority Questioned

Bret Fausett writes to the Council list:

"While I think it may be *unwise* for the Council to get involved in contractual issues between ICANN and a registry or registrar, I don't agree that it's out-of-scope. In fact, I might turn the whole report on its head. Isn't the better answer that it is not 'properly within the scope of' ICANN's Staff's responsibilities to limit the ability of its policy bodies, like the GNSO, to make policy decisions?

On what authority does Staff negotiate what is or isn't a "consensus policy" under Section III.1.(b) of the proposed Registry Contract?"
