This is April Fool's day and you are joking ... right?
read carefully -->
DNSO is about domain names
domain owners have a vested interest in domain names
Indviduals can own domain names
therefore individuals have a vested interest in domain names.
here's yet another one for you (a bit more complex, but I think you can
representation includes recognition/voting power, in any organization
ICANN/DNSO constituencies are the ONLY method of representation within
the DNSO/GA has no voting power, therefore it is not a constituency
there are no constituencies, that include individuals
therefore individuals have no representation

It is right on up there with "taxation without representation".
