I think we need to nail it down a bit further than that.

Some of the members of the DNSO GA and Announce list are list 
redistribution points or archivers. Those functions obviously don't have 
any ambition about being members, but some of the people who read list 
traffic via those mechanisms might want to be counted as members, even 
though they aren't on the list.

I take it we all agree that the GA members are human beings, acting for 
themselves (no corporations as GA members, one man = one vote)?
And that we accept the risk that some organization with ten thousand 
members might want to sign them all up to the GA and "take it over" - that 
it's so unlikely this would happen that we don't see a reason to guard 
against it?
(or - that if this happened, they would be welcome to it?)
