Editor's note: What it actually says is worthy of note:

Correspondence from GAC Chairman to ICANN Board Regarding .XXX TLD
ICANN has posted correspondence from the Chairman of ICANN's Governmental Advisory Committee to ICANN's Board of Directors expressing concerns about the proposal to approve the delegation of the .XXX sponsored Top Level Domain. The GAC Chair reports that there are a wide range of views regarding the potential delegation of .XXX, and recommends that the Board should allow time for additional governmental and public policy concerns to be expressed before reaching a final decision on this TLD.

[UPDATE] Don't miss co-editor Milton Mueller's comments over at the Governance list. ("Please note that under ICANN's structure, GAC has no authority whatsoever to ask for such a thing. And yet, it might get it.")
