I agree on the need of redefining the role of the GA in order to raise 
its importance in the process, but I just do not see in the current 
situation how ICANN could take into consideration this kind of petition.

If we were working, and producing useful DNS-related contributions, we 
could reasonably ask to count more, but if the debate is continuing on 
these topics and with this climate, ICANN is more likely to be tempted 
to scrap the GA altogether than give it more power.

In summary, your idea is good, but there's some prior work to be done in
 order to make the GA useful, before making it important.
