Yes, those are important elements of a contract.  The CRISP Team 
is not attempting to draft a contract; we are attempting to draft 
a proposal, and the proposal suggests a contract as one of the 
next steps.

The CRISP Team is asking the community to endorse the idea of a 
contract, to be drafted later, and certain principles that should 
be included in the contract.

I'd like to hear opinions from other community members on these

1. Should ICANN continue to provide the IANA services to the numbering
community (the RIRs and their members)?

2. If so, should there be a formal contract between ICANN and the RIRs?

3. If so, should the contract follow the principles outlines in 
section III.A.3 of the CRISP Team's proposal?

4. If so, should the contract be drafted in the remaining days 
before 15 January 2015 (when the final proposal is due to be sent 
to the ICG), or can it be drafted later, some time between now and 
when the transition takes place?

5. If the contract can be drafted later, does the community want 
the RIR Boards or executive officers to consult the community 
before finalising the contract?
