FWIW, I am calm, and I don't consider this to be a problem. My comment is "it doesn't cover DNSSEC", not "it should cover DNSSEC".

Exactly. And don't forget:
d) A tediously decided but politically expedient amalgam that satisfies no one.
I don't believe that my opinion should count for which of those four will be the outcome because I haven't work into researching the topic and listening to others who have done so. I don't intend to spend a lot of time on the topic because I believe that ICANN's result will only be mildly affected by all the hard work put into the report.
