Andrei and all,

Thank you very much Andrei for compiling the review, including the community feedback. I agree with the analysis.

In addition to the analysis, when sharing this with the global community, I would find it useful to add:

 - General observation about the SLA if possible, in addition to review per principle, such as it is basically consistent with the numbers proposal except...
 - If there is any element in the numbers proposal, intentionally not reflected in the SLA, it would be helpful to highlight what they are

These points are for when sharing with the ianaxfer list for comments and no need to be incorporated as the comment we submit to the NRO.
I also have two questions about the clauses in the SLA, which perhaps Craig or/and Michael could help to clarify.

The Operator shall prepare a plan for this purpose and submit this plan to the RIRs (18) months after the date of this Agreement.

May I  assume it is set after 18 months to give some time for the Operator for the preparation? If yes, do we not need to set a limit of period in preparation, in case it does not get completed unless specified?

To the extent that the Operator possesses rights in and to any intellectual property, including but not limited to copyrights, trademarks and service marks, 
related to the performance of its obligations under this Agreement, Operator does hereby assign and transfer any and all right, title and interest in and to such intellectual property rights to the RIRs, their successors, assigns and designee.

Am I reading this right that the intellectual property rights transfer to RIRs, including trademarks and service marks?

Talk to you all shortly!
