Feedback on Proposed Public Comment Constructs

Dear Olivier,

I support the suggestion. Public comment, a distinctive feature of ICANN,
has become more complex over the years and requires streamlining. In the
process aimed at improving the representativity and efficiency of public
comment, ALAC / At-Large must seek to preserve -and where possible
enhance- the interests of the general Internet user. Best wishes to Dev
