That's a very useful clarification. Speaking of assumptions, I had 
assumed that the process of discussing the transition plan would 
inevitably take place at ICANN meetings, on the 1Net list, at the IGF, 
and so on.

But if the process itself isn't yet decided, then that leaves plenty of 
time for stakeholders to develop their own positions for feeding into 
the process, when the process itself opens for business later in the 

(Of course, the process may well include the elements I list above, and 
I look forward to participating).
