Excellent suggestion. I have received a request from the CWG Chairs to start coordination on this, which I will share in the next e-mail.

To expand, I'd also like to suggest that:

 * Share the CRISP Team observation on Sidley's memo and share on the ianaxfer list as well as to the CWG (through the CWG Chairs perhaps)
   Target: next week

 * State the above plan in the next 12 hours
   We are frequently refered in the CWG discussions and we should give clarify about our plan/position

Please start sharing your observations per Scenario before the CRISP Team call next week.

 1. ICANN Maintains Ownership of IANA IPR (Scenario 1)
 2. PTI Becomes the Registered Owner of the IANA IPR (Scenario 2)
 3. An Independent Trust Becomes the Registered Owner of the IANA IPR (Scenario 3)

It's good to see the discussions have started on Scenario 2.

German, as requested before, please confirm if we could arrange the CRISP Team call next week.
The suggested dates are Wed 12th or Thu 13th.

Would be great if you could set a doodle to see team's availabilities but if there is not time, whichever date that works for you and the NRO Secretariat is fine.
