Dear Alissa,

just a small question for my understanding:
as the proposal speaks about ownership and transferring data to PTI for 
naming functions, but also mentions possible implications for non-naming 
functions. Is there any implicit assumption that such a PTI entity would 
aspire ownership or copyright for the data in the IANA registries?

Would it make sense that we make it more clear in the context of this 
proposal that PTI is not assuming ownership of that data?

Just a thought.

Best, Tobias
