[icann-eu] Re: Proposed amendment to membership fee proposal

Milton and all,

  This is an excellent proposal Milton.  However it has been made
before.  I made such a suggestion over a year ago.  I would also
suggest this sort of proposal be used for the ICANN @large membership
as well.

  In fact Milton, in the next round of ICANN Registry proposals should also
be based upon GDP per capita as well?

  I guess this would mean the Luxembourg orgs would pay a bit more
than $50 US?  >;)
