I would be happy with specifying "International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) arbitration in a neutral velue" (I think that adding "ICC" probably does not impose too much constraint on the negotiations).  I think that specifying "Bermuda" would be too much detail, so we should not do that.

Agreed.  I believe we should be relatively generic here.  My preference would be for the “arbitration in a neutral venue” wording.

> I don't think we shoudl say which law will apply.  However, I think it's fine for us to say that the contract must specify which law will apply.  I am concerned that specifying that the law must be that of a "neutral jurisdiction" will impose too much constraint on the negotiations.

I agree with all three points.

I do not agree with this.  I believe we should, somewhere near the top of the document, express the general sentiment that the RIRs’ authority is derived from their open, bottom-up community participation, but should leave it at that, and not be overly prescriptive, nor beat the “open” drum to incessantly.
