FYI.   IMHO, the Final Report offers improved clarity and crispness in
language.  A few additions/clarifications from the preliminary report peaks

1.  WHOIS must be established as a strategic priority for ICANN. They
doubled down by providing some definitive [and guiding!] recommendations to
the Board to that objective.

2.  Explicitly valorize the finding of widespread interest/convergence of
WHOIS matters in the global community by recommending a fulsome outreach

3.  Makes an explicit connection between anticipated improved compliance
with a different reporting structure for ICANN Compliance that compels
greater accountability from ICANN Board for outcomes, coupled with more
transparent operations.

4.  Declares in favour of " *a clear, unambiguous and enforceable chain of *
*contractual agreements with registries, registrars, and registrants to
require the **provision and maintenance of accurate WHOIS data*.".

Speaking as Chair of the At-Large WHOIS WG, I shall recommend that the ALAC
issue a statement fully endorsing the recommendations of the Final Report
