You may recall this Board request for input and advice on how to get 
input and advice.

I volunteered to draft a statement. Despite some ALAC comments that 
this request was more-of-the-same and did not warrant our 
involvement, my personal opinion is that it is among the more 
important things that we could influence.

My draft statement can be found at 
https://community.icann.org/x/K5AoAg. It is long, but there is also a 
link to a PDF with somewhat better formatting. It is also a bit more 
hard-hitting and to the point than are some of my comments.

The deadline for submitting a comment is 25 Oct. If there is little 
interest in the ALAC for submitting such a comment, I am happy to do 
it under my own name as well as anyone else who supports it. But if 
there is agreement with the issues raised, it certainly would have 
more impact coming from the ALAC.

I am speaking at a public panel on this subject on Monday. At this 
point, it is solely on my own behalf, but I welcome input from others 
on the ALAC as to what should be said.
