 Hi Evan (and everyone) 
 Actually, that document was on my list of issues that still need 
addressing. We were not consulted about it, and I have not had a 
chance to go through to see in detail what is there - and what should 
be there. My impression is that all that was done was to take the 
obligations registrars have under the RAA and turn them into the one 
page document called Rights - or Benefits. In fact, since that is all 
the document is, it really is a light of what a registrant has a right 
to expect.

 Hello all, 
 One of the things that I noticed in the last Registrar Accreditation 
 Agreement -- snuck in at the last moment, so I didn't notice it 
before it 
 was presented at Durban -- was the replacement of the term 
 Rights and Responsibilities" with "Registrant Benefits and 
 Responsibilities" in some but not all cases. Indeed, it looked like a 
 sloppy search-and-replace effort because the word "rights" was 
removed in 
 some places but not others in what appears as random fashion. 
 Given that the ALAC did not have an opportunity to discuss this 
during the 
 Durban meeting, I raised it in an individual capacity during the 
 Public Forum (see page 97 of the Forum 
 transcript [1]; 
 When asked, Fadi spent what seemed quite a long time (not reflected 
in the 
 transcript) conferring silently with his staff (including legal 
 after which he promised to "look into it". 
 I would like to ask Olivier and/or At-Large staff to please follow up 
 this. I think that the community is owed an explanation of how the 
 "registrant benefits and responsibilities" ever crept into ICANN 
lingo; I 
 don't ever recall it ever being used in a policy context. 
 Thank you,
