Well suppose some folks wish to join the DNSO but not the At large
ICANN membership. Making that a prerequisite disenfranchises quite
a number of people or organizations unfairly. In addition the ICANN
makes the ICANN At Large a bit of a concern for many. In fact I see
no privacy certification on the ICANN membership site. I only see
a very brief "FAQ" listing concerning Privacy. That just isn't good enough...

Exactly. So in this statement you have effectively contravened your
previous thought/statement above Harald...
