I read AFPUB-2017-GEN-002-DRAFT-02.  In Section 3.5:

   "One or all initiators of a policy proposal have the option to 
remain anonymous."

Could the anonymity cause any conflict of interest issues?

In Section

   "Once adopted by the working group, the initiator(s) grants all rights to
    the working group and the proposal becomes a community document. In all
    matters of intellectual property rights and procedures."

Does that mean that the author does not have any IPR on the work?

Is the working group allowed to act as a "copyright owner"?

In Section 3.6:

   "After a draft proposal has reached rough consensus, the AFRINIC
    board of Directors have the obligation to check if process has
    been followed very well."

Section (a) uses the term "consensus" while (c) uses 
the term "rough consensus".  Can a draft proposal can be ratified by 
the Board if it has reached "rough consensus" only?

Does Section 3.6 mean that the Board of directors should perform a 
detailed verification of the process which was followed for the draft proposal?

Is the "will endorse any such adopted policy" sentence in Section 
3.7.2. in conflict with Section 11.5 (ii) of the Bylaws?
