Please note that if it turns out that you can enjoy rights without 
signing the related agreement, my organization will consider terminating 
the agreement. Why should we sign a contract if it is not necessary?

Anyway, if you really want a vote on that, let's do this in parallel; 
but let's not delay the rest of the procedure. I think that further 
delays are unacceptable. We already stretched the original schedule a 
lot, we accepted late nominations without objection, we encouraged those 
who had not signed yet to do it now so that they could still participate 
in the vote. Many of us here accepted lots and lots of compromises, 
trying to build a home that can be good both for techies and for 
activists, for groups and for individuals; and we still receive messages 
stating "the only solution is to do exactly as I say". I think that 
ICANN should be more supportive of constructive contributions and less 
accommodating with destructive ones.

In the end, people have to realize that either they believe in this 
process, and so sign the MoU and accept to live with the diversity of 
opinions in the group, or they do not, and so they stop participating. 
Just staying half way, posting objections to each and every step 
forward, is neither useful nor reasonable for anyone.
