Am not sure any further compensation should be made, as I believe ICANN IMO
already has a very attractive renumeration for her employees (especially
the senior staff), and those restrictions consideration could serve as part
of pay justifications as well.
That said, I don't think a 6 months cooling off time will be ideal in this
context (not for key principal officers), something within the range of 12
to 18 months may be more like it.
