Full support for both issues.

I thought that this was a process that was coming up and was part of the
CCWG Accountability Work Stream 2. I note that it is the object of one
of our ATLAS II Recommendations, #14.

With the GAC's 4 topics:
·       IANA stewardship transition
·       ICANN accountability
·       New gTLD Safeguards
    ·       the new ICANN meeting structure

I would have thought that's already more than enough for an hour.

Kind regards,
