Thank you for the clarification.

There are non-technical considerations for some IAB decisions.  There 
was, for example, a statement about to free flow of information and 
jurisdiction, and stakeholders.  One of the points in that statement 
is that, in some cases, policy or business expertise is 
necessary.  The free flow of information was a topic of discussion in 
the IGF.  It might be difficult to gain agreement on whether that 
topic is related to the proposed IAB programme.
