>> Dear colleagues,
>> This is an update to the community on the current discussion between
>> the IETF and ICANN regarding the annual SLA or Supplemental Agreement.
>> Each year, the IETF (via the IAOC) and ICANN specify a supplemental
>> agreement to our Memorandum of Understanding, in order to ensure that
>> any gaps or identified operational issues are addressed.
>> As you are aware, inspired by the request from the IANA Stewardship
>> Transition Coordination Group (ICG), last year we formed the IANAPLAN
>> working group and achieved IETF consensus on the state of affairs with
>> IANA registries published under the direction of the IETF.  That
>> consensus is captured in draft-ietf-ianaplan-icg-response-09, which was
>> transmitted to the ICG.  In that document the community sought to have
>> some facts acknowledged as part of any IANA transition plan:
>> o  The protocol parameters registries are in the public domain.  It
>>    is the preference of the IETF community that all relevant parties
>>    acknowledge that fact as part of the transition.
>> o  It is possible in the future that the operation of the protocol
>>    parameters registries may be transitioned from ICANN to subsequent
>>    operator(s).  It is the preference of the IETF community that, as
>>    part of the NTIA transition, ICANN acknowledge that it will carry
>>    out the obligations established under C.7.3 and I.61 of the
>>    current IANA functions contract between ICANN and the NTIA
>>    [NTIA-Contract] to achieve a smooth transition to subsequent
>>    operator(s), should the need arise.  Furthermore, in the event of
>>    a transition it is the expectation of the IETF community that
>>    ICANN, the IETF, and subsequent operator(s) will work together to
>>    minimize disruption in the use the protocol parameters registries
>>    or other resources currently located at iana.org.
>> Understanding this consensus, the IETF leadership have been
>> negotiating with ICANN to include text to satisfy these points in our
>> annual Service Level Agreement.  After some iterations, we arrived at
>> text that we think captures the IETF consensus, but ICANN has informed
>> us that they are unable to agree to that text right now.  ICANN told
>> us that, in their opinion, agreeing to that text now would possibly
>> put them in breach of their existing agreement with the NTIA.
>> It is our view that the substance of the statements above is already
>> part of our agreement with ICANN, and that we are merely elaborating
>> details of that existing agreement.  We expect that as we continue
>> towards the orderly winding down of NTIA's involvement in the IANA
>> processes, our existing arrangements will be preserved, in keeping
>> with IETF consensus.
>> We will of course continue to assess the situation, agreements, and
>> next steps, as well as developments in other operational
>> communities. We think that the existing agreement between ICANN and
>> the IETF makes good sense, and is good for the Internet.  The IETF has
>> stated very strongly that it supports that existing agreement.  That
>> strong support is a necessary condition for success, and we shall not
>> waver in our commitment to the IETF's continued responsible
>> stewardship of the protocol parameters registries.
>> We note that the IETF community remains very satisfied with ICANN's
>> current level of performance.  The existing supplemental agreement,
>> from last year, continues until it is replaced.
>> We welcome your thoughts about this situation.  We will continue to
>> use the IANAPLAN mailing list for these discussions.
