It has a concrete list of things for ICANN to do.  It avoids going into 
the usual weeds, e.g., full anonymity for criminals vs. full proccess 
service for trademark lawyers, while still making some progress there.

Assuming you believe that ALAC's job is to represent the interests of 
Internet users in general and not just us vanity registrants, it's an 
important step to making the Internet more reliable for normal users.  The 
fake Vuitton spammer is a good example of where correct WHOIS would help.
