I would be very careful with this, for two reasons:

1) As Craig has pointed out, if there are controversial points or no time
for discussions, we should only issue things as drafts or maybe even not
at all.

2) The Dynamic Coalitions are Multi-Stakeholder bodies. The Internet
Governance Caucus whose statement you recommend to endorse is a pure civil
society body. For the sake of long-term multi-stakeholder collaboration in
this and other coalitions, I would prefer to keeep these separated. We
can't take the coalitions and just transform them into advocacy groups.

That of course is fine and should certainly be done.
