With all due respect, Dr. Cerf, if you cannot dig out such
informaton from the archives why should we accept the idea
that the whole voting process was considered a one-shot
effort at the time of its inception?  From what I
remember, there was no talk whatsoever of the last
election being a one-shot deal until well after the event
itself (approx. one year later).  I'm sure many of us
(tens of thousands, in fact) would appreciate any effort
you might make in actually producing the relevant
information you cite above.

Well, the term of the current AtLarge Directors is
expiring, it would appear as if an election is in order. 
Especially given the fact that there has been no effort to
restructure ICANN in any way to date.  Why should the
AtLarge Membership be the only appendage of the
Corporation to be treated in such a singular manner?

If I understand you correctly, you are saying that what we
are witnessing currently is the implementation of the
ALSC's reccommendations.  Can you please point out the
Board resolution which ratifies the ALSC proposal?
