Hello All,

Thanks Craig for updating this document. I think it provides general
reflection of the current status. I only have a few comments and
suggestions on the document.

The table of proposals the column for ARIN includes a point to 'Reaffirm
commitments'. It is not clear what commitments this point makes
reference to. Is is reaffirming commitment to the IANA operator? I am
not sure this is necessary as there will be a new contract here. Is it
reaffirming commitments to the IETF or another body? If so, I think that
needs to be clearly stated in the notes below the table.

Under the section 'Accommodating the differences' you make reference to
the NRO entering into a contract with the IANA operator. I would like to
suggest to remove reference to the NRO as it will be the 5 RIRs entering
into a contract with the IANA operator. This is a small but very
important distinction. The NRO is not an incorporated entity and is not
in a position to enter into such a legal contract.

In the summary, point 3 makes reference to the NRO convening a 'broad
based community body'. I think the words broad based is a new term and
possibly superfluous in this context. I think a 'community body'
encompasses a broad based approach and is a term that is well understood
and agreed in RIR community workings. Please also note that it will be
the RIRs that would convene such a body.

I hope that these suggestions can be incorportated into this document.

Thanks and I look forward to our teleconference call today.
