Just to be specific, below is the paragraph text i proposed to be remove:

So can you tell me how/why the section above is a response to a question
asking about "
*Proposed Post-Transition Oversight and Accountability Arrangements"?*
Section B which asked about existing Oversight and Accountability already
adequately captures what needs to be said. There is no need to be trying to
say "*what is*" in a section asking for "*what next*", also not necessary
to formerly document the conclusions the statement above is trying to make.

Actually we can agree on this one [1], not because it is what NTIA called
it but because i have realised that calling it contract or agreement does
not actually make any difference and what is important is the content of
the contract. So all my comments relating to the content of the contract
remains valid.


1. Taking wikipedia definition of contract as a reference

The key to understanding is humility - my view !
