Dear Nathalie,

Thanks for your thoughts - I would propose one amendment though. Spam IS content - and dealing with spam in the various MS fora where it has been the focus of work for several years is a notable success in the security field (I will let those better versed in the field respond in more depth).

I would certainly say that robustness and net neutrality are 'transport platform' issues in the largest sense and therefore 'In scope' if you take my definition as a lens through which to view subjects.

I propose a way to resolve the vagueness that has bedeviled this term for 10 years built around the concept that the data that is carried by the Internet and the network that carries that data are separate things, and that data should not be a part of "Internet Governance" because it is dealt with in many other venues.
