We should also be prepared for the consequences of any compromise. For
example, any compromise that goes against the CRISP proposal will have to
go back to the community process and seek re-approval. From the SLA, it is
clearly stated that ICANN is the IFO. So the community proposal is praying
for the IPR to sit anywhere other than within ICANN.
