Hi Izumi,

Thank you for forwarding this on.

I am trying to follow the CWG discussions a little bit through the archives. 
(I tried to subscribe, just to follow the discussions as an observer, but that is apparently not possible. I was asked to fill out a form about who I am, who I represent etc. It doesn't seem to be possible to simply "listen in" to the discussions.) 

This is indeed very interesting. And I think we may need to discuss this within CRISP and the RIR communities. 

My very early thoughts from having just read this proposal quickly (so apologies if I misinterpreted anything): 

While I can certainly understand the motivation from the names community and the problems they are trying to solve, I am not convinced that this is inline with the needs and wishes of the Numbers community. 

Without having followed the background discussions completely, I interpret this "IANA board" as a move towards mixing policy and operations, in a way that we in the Numbers community have been very careful to separate. 

I also think that the chart on page 4 "ICANN without NTIA" misrepresents the CRISP proposal. We propose establishing an SLA with the IANA operator and that is not to be confused with, or mixed in together with the RIR-ICANN MoU. 

I also think it talks about IANA accountability in a way that is somewhat misguided and certainly not applicable to the Numbers community. In my view, the IANA operator needs to carry out an operational task according to the SLA established. There is no need to talk about IANA accountability as all they do is to provide a service. 

(In our discussions in the CRISP group, we agreed that ICANN Accountability is something that is outside the scope of the CRISP process, as that it handled in the MoU between the RIRs and ICANN, which defines the gPDP. This can certainly be discussed, but CRISP is not the venue for it. And if you want to talk about RIR accountability, you can certainly do so, but not in this proposal. Those matters are handled in the RIR structures, processes and PDPs.)

This proposal seems to also make it impossible to potentially separate the three IANA functions at a future date. This is contrary to the CRISP proposal.

From first readings, I feel that this proposal does not meet the needs and wishes of the Numbers community and it does not improve anything in relation to the submitted CRISP proposal.

I'm interested in hearing others' thoughts on this.
