Dear Seun,

Thank you for this.

As you know, my proposal is different in some respects, but I won't repeat it here.  I expect that whoever edits or compiles the first draft response to the CWG RPF will take into account all comments and proposals made on this list.

However, I will comment below on some parts of your message.

Thanks again and best,

Actually, at present it is the ICANN Board which ratifies the IP address policies.  I don't see the value-added in that, I would propose that the NRO be the ultimate ratification body.

My proposal is that the ICANN Board should not have any role regarding IP address policies.

Same comment as above.
