Hi all. 
I attended the DNA session in Marrakesh - I think the official title was "Industry Best Practices - the DNA healthy domains initiative".
The session has been very interesting, as it proposed some mechanisms that, IMHO, could be useful also from the consumer protection point of view.
The only issue is that they are doing this by themselves, without input from the consumers. I have argued, as did Sebastién, that user input was needed.
After the meeting, I had a chat with some DNA officials, and they told me that they would have contacted us (ALAC).
I did not hear anything. Did somebody else in ALAC?
If nothing has moved yet, I propose that we proactively take action, and start developing at least a bullet point list of items that we believe need to be taken into account if DNA wants to develop a proposal.
Just FYI, they argued in the meeting that they take into account user needs because... we are their customers. My position is, and they seemed to be listening to this argument, that the proposal would be much weaker unless it is developed taking direct input from all stakeholders.
Can we start a discussion on this, and maybe have a pool of people developing some considerations related to consumer interests?
