I will be commenting on the specifics of the statement, but to set 
the record straight, I have told the DT that to the extent that there 
have been ALAC comments (and Evan has certainly been one of them), 
the general feeling was that ICANN should not be extending special 
protection to these two organizations. Some of the members of the DT 
have been formally representing their constituencies/SGs. That has 
not been the case for me and I don't think I have ever represented my 
participation as representing ALAC except at the times that I gave 
the above disclaimers.

My own participation in the DT has been from a perspective of given 
that the Board *has* extended special protection, how can we make the 
details of that protection least-onerous to the community in general, 
to those organizations, and to ICANN (and I have made it clear to the 
ALAC Executive Committee and others) that this has been my goal. That 
is quite close, I think, to the position that Jeff has taken.
