We decided not to say anything about the venue for the proposed 
new contract, but that's not in this section.  This section 
is talking about existing arrangements, and the exisiting ASO 
MoU.  Here, I think we should accurately describe the existing 
arbitration arrangements.

The text says that there will be no change at all to service 
levels or reporting.  I don't think that's accurate.  I think 
there may be small changes to service level agreements as a result 
of contract negotiations.  I am almost certain that there will be 
changes to reporting, even if it's only a change from "report to 
the NTIA" to "report to the RIRs".

The round dot (bullet) is missing from that line.  Or at least, it 
looks like that on my screen.
