I also noticed factual inaccuracies.

1) Top-down composition and selection of CRISP team:

I don't know how CRISP Team members were selected in other 
regions, but in the Afrinic region, anybody was free to volunteer, 
and the Board made a decision using an internal process.  Criteria 
were published.

2) Top-down decision-making by the CRISP team:

Several aspects of the comment are accurate, but the statement 
that the general public was not involved in decision making 
is inaccurate.  Decisions on wording or level of detail were 
made by the CRISP Team, but decisions on substance were made by 
following the will of the community to the best of our ability.  
The community was free to comment on any decisions that they 
disagreed with.

3) Lack of information and transparency:

The crisp internal mailing list was publicly archived as soon 
as the first draft was produced, not only after the proposal was 

4) Refusal to deal with essential aspects of the proposal:

Yes, we refused to deal with several low level details, bit we 
believe that those details are not essential aspects of the 
proposal.  I think that we had rough community consensus for that
