Hi Max,

The schedules keep changing so much (and missing information) that I'm  
not sure what I have at hand are the latest and definitive (very nice,  
the day before meetings start), but to my knowledge the GNSO counsel  
has a meeting with the GAC 17-18:00 on Sunday.  This would presumably  
impact the participation of Olga, Carlos, Thomas, and myself.  If you  
want, some of us might be able to pop in and say something brief from  
16:30-17:00 but would need to cut out after a half hour.  At least I  

While R&P issues go well beyond this and NCUC/ALAC have emphasized  
that users (aka citizens) > registrants, I like the idea of a  
registrants rights clause that Vittorio floated back when but  
apparently got no traction on.  Irrespective of any wider ambitions,  
it might be interesting to revisit this one bounded suggestion give  
that the RAA will be under discussion in the counsel....

BTW on the broader summit declaration discussion, it's worth noting  
that there are five summit working groups https://st.icann.org/summit-wg/index.cgi?working_groups 
  only one of which (last I checked) had generated a coherent text--- 
#4 on transparency and accountability issues, driven by Wolfgang and  
Adam.  Perhaps the others will have something by Tuesday, but in the  
meanwhile I think it would be good to think about their text, which  
seems quite useful, with an eye to summit adoption.

Off to the airport,
