Sharing the updated draft response, in the course of consulting with the 
IETF, so our reponses are consistent.

Sentence below is now deleted from the previous draft.

"However, if they are indeed incompatible, then the numbers community
would be willing to consider modifying our proposal."

There was a question why we state this, and not simply say "we do not 
see the incompatibility?" - and Alan and I felt that while we added this 
as a direct answer to the question from the ICG, it was not clearly 
discussed on the ianaxfer list so better to omit this part.


Dear Alissa and the ICG,

We refer to the question that the ICG asked the numbers community
on 9 Feb 2015

> The numbers proposal sees these changes as a requirement of the
transition and the protocols parameters proposal does not. If these
aspects of the proposals are perceived as incompatible would the numbers
and protocol parameters communities be willing to modify their proposals
to reconcile them?

We do not observe incompatibilities between the proposals from the
numbers and protocol parameters communities, for reasons given below.

* It is expectations of the numbers community that the IANA
  trademark and IANA.ORG domain are available for the use
  of IANA Numbering Services in the future, even if the IANA
  Numbering Services Operator is changed from ICANN to some other
  operator, or if different communities choose different IANA
  operators in the future.

* In order to meet that requirement, it is the preference of
  the Internet Number Community that the mark and the name be
  transferred to an entity independent of the IANA Numbering
  Services Operator.

* The numbers community considers the IETF Trust as an acceptable
  option, provided this is supported by the IETF community, and
  the IETF Trust is willing to accept it. This is not the only
  option, and the numbers community is open to consider other
  solutions which work for other affected parties.

To summarize: The numbers proposal does not set a "MUST" condition to
transfer the mark and domain to the IETF Trust or to any other specific
entity, and the IETF proposal does not say it will oppose transfer of
the mark and domain to the IETF Trust, so we do not observe any
incompatibilities.  From discussions on the IETF ianaplan group, we
observe subsequent decisions by the IETF ianaplan group and the IETF
Trust further support the position that there is no conflict.

Izumi Okutani on behalf of the CRISP Team
