Yes you are right and I also have made my comments on your proposal too.
However I will attempt to also respond to your comment on my proposal.

I was more of emphasizing the fact that global policies are certified
(ratified) by the community (and that's why you find the hyphen to indicate
the type of ratification I meant). I was definitely not referring to the
board ratification in the message above. Nevertheless, I agree with you
that using the word "ratified" in that context can be misleading. So yes
the ICANN board ratifies the community developed and certified policy as
per the GPDP hence the reason why I have suggested some  specific edits on
the GPDP which basically ensures that the ultimate authority is still in
the hands of the RIR community. What ICANN board is doing will be a
procedural thing as the IANA operator. Just like the board of each RIR
ratifies their regional policies as the operator of the numbers function in
their respective region.

  I don't see the value-added in that, I would propose that the NRO be the
ultimate ratification body.
Kindly refer to my comment above and then you tell me why NRO should ratify
a policy that it developed and also a policy that it will not be it's

Please refer to my comment above.

Same comment as above also.
