Dear Parminder,
Thank you very much for sending these.  Other than one or two small 
difference, I find myself almost fully in agreement.

The ICG report, which supports the PTI proposal by the names community, 
is utterly status quoist, and doesn't address the questions of 
jurisdiction at all.

In fact, it doesn't even call out the attempt by ICANN to ensure that 
PTI will be US-based (a requirement listed in P1. Annex S).
