>> * In section 2.1.2, where it says "The community engages in

>> I think "process" should be plural "processes".
>> * "AFRINIC" was changed to "AfriNIC" in several places.  The

>> * In section 2.1.3, where it says "the NTIA has no oversight

>> Numbering Services", I think the sentence sounds clumsy.  I
>> suggest "the NTIAhas no oversight role in policy-making related to
>> IANA Numbering Services".
>> * In section 2.1.3, it now says that the NRO NC is "a group

>> * In section 3.1.3, typo in "consisten with current mechanisms"
>> should be "consistent with current mechanisms".
>> * In section 4.1, "A new agreement specifying IANA operation of

>> * In section 5, the first item "Support and enhance the

>> * In section 6.2.3, "ARIN 34 meeting in Baltimore" doesn't mention
