Jefsey, I don't want key Internet resources controlled by an
unaccountable organization that has few binding legal limits on what it can
do. Allowing the general public to vote and choose their own leaders
provides a measure of accountability that is helpful, particularly when the
group has the broad policy making mandate that the ERC proposes.
If you could really limit (narrow) the terms of reference of ICANN,
and deal with the anticompetitive cartel type situatation you have now, and
have certain policy development done elsewhere, people probably would not
care so much about elections.
I'm not in the network businesses, so I would not be building any services.
