Hi Milton,

while agreeing with the points you make,
- our Preamble, Overview or Conclusion, while reflecting the input received, must add value to the process;
- this does not mean that ICG would be taking over the task of proposing content;
- in my previous email, I was not suggesting that we would not have much to do: but in the long run, the value of the outcome will be a more important consideration than the quantity of work we put in.

Best regards,

Fundamentally, we are an intermediary between the involved global Internet community, the separate operational communities, NTIA and ICANN. As an intermediary, we have a review, approval and clearinghouse function but not a proposal development function. 

We review the documents for consistency with the requirements and for compatibility before we "stitch them together." If there are compatibility problems or questions about conformity to the requirements we take the lead in resolving them.

In our final proposal, we _should_ draft an overview or preamble which makes a coherent  presentation of the overall outcome. This will be important because it will "frame" the final proposal as a complete package. 

Last but not least, we will be responsible for interpreting the final stage of public comments, and for determining whether modifications are required. 

We will have plenty to do.
