I’m sorry for the late update – real life took priority this afternoon. Alexander sent in some brief notes during the Public Forum, which are now in the Bucharest Protocols archive: 1. A joint statement was made by four of the DNSO’s constituencies (business, ISP, IPC, ccTLDs) on ICANN reform. 2. Becky Burr made a proposal about “unjustifiable objections”. This sounds very much like this IcannWatch story authored by Burr, Johnson, and Crawford. Bret Fausett made this comment at about the same time. 3. Chuck Gomes proposed some changes to the WLS proposal. Most notably, the preferential treatment for SnapNames customers is apparently supposed to go away.

Those of you who understand German may wish to read Monika Ermert’s article on the GAC communiqué. (The communiqué’s text is not available online!) You may also give Google’s translation of the article a try.
