It would be great for members to share their views through the list to make

Here is another issues I think we should discuss regarding scenario 3.
The issue of policing the IPR if it is transferred from the IFO to IETF
Trust. We may need to develop a framework on how we may want the policing
to be done as outlined here by Sidley ... How To maintain accountability by
the trust and to ensure it properly maintains the IANA IPR ...
"Regardless of whether the IETF Trust is selected, or a new trust is
created, the trust documents will need to be amended (in the case of the
IETF Trust), or drafted (in the case of a new trust), to reflect the duties
and responsibilities of the trustees with respect to the IANA IPR, and
their handling of the IANA IPR under certain circumstances such as a
transfer of the IANA functions operator responsibilities away from PTI. To
maintain accountability by the trust and to ensure it properly maintains
the IANA IPR, additional contracts with accountability mechanisms may be
needed. Such mechanisms may include community oversight or involvement.
Further, the trust documentation would need to provide for the immediate
transfer of title away from the trust, if the trustee breaches its duties
with respect to the IANA IPR. These will be very important commitments from
the trust to the multistakeholder community, and will need to be clear that
the trustees will take direction from ICANN, acting as the voice of the
