People interested in our administrative affairs may want to

become a critical path item.


I don't see any problems with this in isolation... on the nitpicking side, I dislike the passive voice of section 2 "A trust... has been formed". Unless one believes in autogenesis of trusts, SOMEONE formed the trust, and it/they should be named. ("IASA in cooperation with other parties"? Also, I believe the term "update to BCP 101" is ill-defined (but then, we never worked out the details of whether or not a BCP could have more than one document); this is an update to RFC 4071, and the intent is that all references to "BCP 101" hereafter should be interpreted as "RFC 4071 as amended by this document". As an update to RFC 4071, I believe it would be better to say which section it updates; I believe section 2 of this document should be considered inserted before section 3, paragraph 6. I believe the document will read more cleanly if the words "rather than ISOC" are deleted from section 2. If you wish to say anything about how material previously thought to be owned by ISOC, a separate section ("transitional arrangements") could be inserted.

External to the document:
When will the Terms of Reference for the trust (or whatever you call them for trusts) be made available to the community?
