 OBSERVATIONS 
       1As no single MSM can serve as a universal reference, the community must foster consideration and innovation of different models, allowing the best possible implementation of MSM for any particular decision-making requirement; TG1  
       2The composition, segmentation ("silos") and diversity of ICANN’s constituent parts should be flexible, as different areas of policy may call for different groupings of interested communities. TG1  
       3Cross-community cooperation should be the default mode; segmentation should only be engaged when the MSM proves ineffective; TG1  
       4The MSM requires efficient processes, clarity of scope, a sufficiently open membership, as well as enhanced engagement between different parts of the Internet ecosystem. TG1  
       5Fellowship programmes should be enhanced to expand eligibility of participants to disadvantaged people and communities everywhere. TG1  
       6Focus on education, digital literacy and the empowerment of the user community and, where possible, on building, maintaining and operating computers & programmes. TG3  
       7Promote, globally, the fundamental rights of Internet users, and thus re-establish trust in the Internet; demand effective protection against arbitrary and pervasive surveillance, collection, treatment, handling and use of personal data; permit users to obtain the deletion of their private data from servers and databases; ensure compatibility between the rights enjoyed by users and the terms of service of private companies serving the Internet community. TG3  
       8Obtain openness and transparency from each country’s ccTLD (or Country Code) operator. TG3  
       9Promote the use, by individuals and organizations, of secure, efficient, easy-to-use interoperable online identity credentials; promote web standards favouring user autonomy and security (e.g. XML and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines), with the active participation of impacted communities. TG3  
     10Foster substantial local content, beyond infotainment; ensure access to truthful information and knowledge. TG3
