I saw at the IGF in Bali that some work has been done on this by a group of organizations including CGI.br and APC.  The Dynamic Coalition on Core Internet Values also seems to have done some work on principles.

I have seen some examples under "Enhanced Cooperation", but I think the world needs to have more examples captured for sharing and learning.

This would be helpful indeed, including to the HLP, in which there’s been some interest expressed in encouraging the spread of national MS, and will be a work stream on participation, including by developing countries, that could dig into this more.

I thought this list was supposed to be for coordination of multistakeholder dialogue on Sao Paulo and beyond, but it seems to alternate between being a troll paradise and the site of a lot of meandering debates on points that are generally being addressed more systematically elsewhere.  Or am I alone in this perception?"

Presumably it’d be helpful if 1net participants were to provide some input on this, and presumably we’d like it to be more than just nice fluffy words.  Why not discuss the range of options to make this a useful exercise, and see where there’s cross-stakeholder consensus and where there’s not?  It’s something concrete that needs to be done, and they want input by 1 March.
