Dear Carlton,

the ALAC position was articulated in a public discussion at the ICANN
meeting in Prague, but also in meetings of the ALT with David Olive on
the Friday morning ALT session wrap-up. The position is as you stated.
Comment + Reply did not work out and Staff was to try several different
types of comment periods, which is what they did.

I note with interest that Staff are putting together a staff-led Team
and I gather someone from At-Large, probably Ariel, should definitely be
part of this.
Kindest regards,
