Is this really what we want to say?
I believe so. The above is theadditional responsibility for IASA.
The text you are stating below is already in the document (in some form)
in other places.
Or do we want to say something like:
The IASA is responsible for managing all intellectual property rights
(IPR) related to IETF administrative support, including but not
limited to trademarks, copyrights, attendance lists, tools, etc.?
We have an IPR WG and have undertaken a mammoth effort to define our
standards-related IPR and how that will be assigned and managed, and
I am not sure that we want to hand management of that IPR over to the
IASA/IAOC, do we? Given the number of the people in the community
that were involved/interested in that effort, I think that we may
continue to want direct community control over the standards-related
