Hi all

InternetNZ has made some comments in response to the second NTIA
Stewardship transition proposal from the names community, available here:


The doc responds to many of the specific questions set out in the public
comment template, and relates this second draft proposal against the
principles we had set out in response to the first draft (principles that
are similar to those the CWG itself has established for the stewardship

I append the summary points here:

* Supports the CWG's Second Proposal as being largely consistent with
InternetNZ's principles, subject to detail being confirmed
* Supports the overall framework of a separated Post-Transition IANA
* Supports a contract between PTI and ICANN
* Reluctantly acquiesces to ICANN becoming the entity through which
community stewardship of the DNS is exercised (through IFR and SRs)
* Supports service level obligations that match current performance, not
inadequate current SoW obligations
* Notes that more detail is needed on key components including escalation
paths, the PTI, the IANA Functions Review and the Separation Review

If you have any questions or thoughts, very keen to discuss sometime next
