Jamie and all stakeholders of interested parties,
Now this is a very good and central point. One I think that many, including
Danny seems to be missing or not understanding well... Well done again
In the view that produced the WHite Paper and the MoU, the stakeholders/users
have an equal standing in representation on the ICANN BoD or are suppose to.
The DNSO Constituency model for the DNSO was and remains a poor
method by which to achieve that representation which thus far been the
failed direction and the largest cause or the intractability and divisiveness
in the ICANN building process. Therefore the only place or method
by which average stakeholders/users can be legitimately represented
on the BoD is an At-Large membership structure...
