Hi Manal,

I understand your question but to borrow from Joe Alhadeff's email, we are working to assure "a workable compatability across all the proposals and assuring that they properly completed all elements of our RFP in a manner that was sufficient to address our best understanding of what was being requested in the NTIA conditions", and I would add that we are all working to ensure the continued stability, security, of these identifiers, etc. etc.   For me, all this is what makes it a "combined proposal".   The challenge will be in getting all this reflected in the "introduction/summary", etc.

FWIW,  I actually thought about combining them differently as well (for the submission to NTIA) but I believe it is very important that we stay true in our submission to the way the functions are managed today.    Keeping the work of the various communities intact and reinforcing this will be the most helpful to the IANA functions in the long-term.
