Hi Izumi,

This version looks good to me.

I suggest a slight modification to the text "each of the three IANA
function is basically independent with minimum overlap. In areas where
potential overlaps were anticipated, such as on Intellectual Property
Rights (IPR)  and establishment of the Post Transition IANA(PTI),'

specifically to use "potential incompatibility" instead of "potential
overlap" since we used the term overlap in a different context (i.e.
overlapping registries).

IMO, as long as the service levels are met, the IANA resources are
outside our concern. If we still  want to stress this point, I'd suggest
"The Number Community proposal for the RIRs to sign an SLA with ICANN is
still possible to implement, and therefore still workable, provided that
ICANN ensures that conditions in the SLA are met by the PTI".

I have a bit of a problem with the answer to Q6 as it is written. I
think we should limit the scope of the review to "as pertained to the
administration of the special-purpose “IN-ADDR.ARPA” and “IP6.ARPA” DNS

I am not sure we need to include the second paragraph of the answer to Q6.
