Dear IRPlers

WOW - my respect I finally got around to looking through Section 2 and I was
super happy to see that it was pretty complete and well formulated.

I actually think that we can make a preliminary version and bring printouts
to the IGF.

We should maybe put a Beta as well as/or a version 0.9 on it, but i think it
certainly raises most aspects and should be mainstreamed as wide as

I would be happy to make nice printouts, but could anybody work on a nice

**Please explain:There is certainly no right to a n internet backbone*
Public infrastructure. The internet serves as a global public
infrastructure. This infrastructure must be widely distributed and support
sufficient bandwidth, which will enable people everywhere to utilise its
potential for raising their voices, improving their lives and expressing
their creativity. People have the right to well-distributed national
internet backbone that is connected to the international network.

 Open accessibility for all. People should be able to access and use all
interfaces, content and applications (inclusive design). Interfaces, content
and applications must be designed to ensure accessibility for all, including
people with physical, sensory or cognitive disabilities, people who are not
literate and people who speak minority languages. The principle of inclusive
design and the use of assistive technologies must be promoted and supported
to allow persons with disabilities to benefit fully and on equal terms with
non-disabled people.
