Alan, thanks for the update and this is consistent with my understanding.

Below is what Russ Housley has share with us as the points to cover in
the joint proposal, based on the meeting on Friday, updated by Alan.

Regarding point 3) in my previous e-mail (clarify the rights should be
tranferable incase we change the operator), it was observed that this is
described as the must for both IETF and both me & Alan consider it as
the must on the numbers proposal. However, this is not inconsistency, so
we do not mention it.

Points to cover in the joint statement:
(Given there will be consensus in both the IETF and the numbers
community and the IETF Trust agrees to accept if offered)

- No inconsistencies in the IETF and RIR community proposals.

- IETF and RIR communities are willing to transition iana.org and the
IANA trademark to the IETF Trust either before or after the stewardship

- IETF and RIR communities both need explicit permission to use the IANA

- IETF Trust is willing to accept iana.org and the IANA trademark if
they are offered
