We understand that the purpose of the issues list requested by the Panel is at least in part to assist the Panel in determining the questions on which the Amici will be invited to submit briefs. In that regard, we note that the Panel has directed the Parties and Amici to make "[s]ubmissions on questions as to which the Amici will be permitted to submit briefings to the Panel, as well as page limits and other modalities" by 24 April. The Parties together propose the following modification to the Procedural Timetable for Phase II in order to make those submissions as useful to the Panel (and the Parties) as possible. We propose that the Panel direct the Amici to provide to Afilias and ICANN the list of questions that they wish to address—along with their proposed page limits and modalities—by Friday, 27 March. That will give the Parties and Amici ample time to meet and confer on the proposed questions, page limits, and modalities. If the Parties and Amici can agree on these items, we will so advise the Panel on 24 April. If not, the Amici’s proposed list of questions will be submitted to the Panel on 24 April, along with submissions from the Parties and Amici concerning those areas on which they cannot agree.
