Don Telage was sympathetic to our cause.  He made a genuine effort to improve
the wretched representation situation on the NC and offered  2 of the 3 seats
allocated to the gTLD "constituency" to the unrepresented.  
Of couse, NSI being in frontal confrontation with ICANN at that time, NSI was
happy to use us too, to embarrass ICANN.

After it came to a deal (1999) with ICANN, NSI cooled off from helping the
individual DN holders.
By the time VRSG took over, it was all over.

Did you read Mike Roberts' rejection of that proposal too?
Search the ICANN site.
The interim Board simply reduced NSI's seats for 3 to 1 and that was it.
