Bear in mind that we have to have a vote on the charter, then submit it
to ICANN for approval, and that should happen soon. While the
temptation to make substantial changes is great, we need to be very
careful about going down a road that might open extended debate. I
suggest, therefore, that we concentrate on the matter of alternates,
get a version of the charter out to the constituency that deals with
that issue, try to get it approved, and continue with further mods as a
later step.

In regards to alternates:

It is unambiguous and clear that neither the NC nor ICANN is going to
permit alternates -- see, and the
preceeding and following discussion.

In fact, it is so clear that I am not sure that the version of the text
that I proposed is adequate to deal with the issue. Andrew's review of
the associated language in the ICANN bylaws is pretty stark.
