RE: [ga] Proposal: WWW / slashdot

You said originally, I think, "necessary and sufficient";
If you said "sufficient but not necessary" that's another vision.

Is the GA an overlapping or disjoint set with the DNSO constituencies? How
about the ASO, and PSO?

If it is overlapping, ie. if anyone in a DNSO/ASO/PSO group is [eligible
to be a] part of the GA, then it makes a lot of sense to say "if ICANN
member then GA member" without necessarily implying the reverse (if not,
then not). If there is any group of DNSO/ASO/PSO members who might be
ICANN members who would not be eligible to be GA members (is there?), then
the result should be different.

More likely to be stable longer.
