Thanks for this excellent analysis, Milton.

Your post helps those who did not have enough brain to understand the
Hamilton report to read it through your lenses.

It is indeed good as you said that ICANN is finally working on what it
should have worked on for so long: privacy issues.
Now that the GDPR enforcement is very soon (May 2018), the ICANN community
is working under pressure to help "save" ICANN Org from the consequences of
not complying with the European data privacy law, something it should have
stated earlier enough.

Thanks for bringing this discussion on these CS lists and i hope more of
our IG CS members (who are not following much of ICANN's work) will be
interested in this aspect of what ICANN and will provide their thoughts (by
emailing gdpr at icann.org) in helping ICANN make good decisions.
