I see. Thanks for sharing this. Helpful to know including the IETF

It makes sense to me broadly.
What do other members think about it?

It's still not totally clear to me on how we ensure ICANN, as the
operator of IANA will act transparently and accountable, which I
understood as the initial intention of the AoC - CRISP team, quite
likely I'm wrong, so please correct me in that case.

Do we say this will be addressed in ICANN Accountabilty CCWG or
do we consider this is not important we care? etc.

I don't have a strong opinion about this - just trying to figure out how
we explain to the communities once we publish the draft.

Yes. I agree it's a seperate issue. It also is important to address.

Question: Do we want to describe this in the proposal?
My initial instict is, it may make it confusing, it it's not a current
arrangement and not related to IANA.

What do you, Andrei, and anyone else think?
