    Cerf's response to Teare by odonnell
    Re:Cerf's response to Teare

    If you read the various transcripts from the
    meetings in Shangri La, the Dali Lama or Iana
    (Vinton Cerf) has a consistent approach and
    theme. He basically moved the meeting agendas
    along in use typical dismissive fashion. He also
    seized every opportunity to note all of the
    smiling faces (happy people) and how smooooothly
    this meeting went. ICANN has finally hit the
    stride that matches Vinton Cerf's style. It has
    the excess funding it needs to run without a
    hitch and to ignore anyone not stepping up to
    sign up and contribute. Teare was given the
    usual Vinton Cerf - VKO - Verbal Kiss Off.

    >>keith teare: just as a practical point, the sole motivation for the existence of these registrars goes away were the wait list service were to be operative. so the delay in service impacts that.

    >>vint cerf: if anyone here is familiar with chess you'll know what a pinned piece is and we have a very peculiar, complex stalemate right now with regard to these various comments. alex.

    >>milton mueller: i just wanted to clarify what the standing was.

    i asked a question. i was told that it would be answered. and we were waiting for the answer, i would like to know if that is actually going to happen.

    >>vint cerf: yes, it is.

    paul is prepared to respond. james.

    >>james seng: i know the queue is closed.

    i'm sorry. but i just want to make a comment. ietf idn working group has worked on the issues. its design charge (inaudible) including top-level domain can be non-english characters. so i'm not sure what -- that's how we actually wrote the internet draft, or, rather, the rfc that's been published. now, whether the top-level domain can be in non-english characters i think will be an icann issue rather than an ietf issue. that's my personal opinion. (applause.)

    >>vint cerf: okay.

    well, we'll have to discuss that in the engineering quarters. paul, do you -- where are we? oh, mr. qian.

    >>hualin qian: we are talking about the idn system, because china, korea, japan, and also in taiwan we have cooperated, working team on that and have made many progress.
