Jeez.  What an absolutely silly and ridiculous distortion.  The gTLD
constituency is __14%__ of the NC, for petes sake.  By any measure that
is a small minority, and it is just silly to claim that the behavior of
such a small minority is going to make the "resulting structure"

Recently Patrick Corliss has revived the old idea that the
representation should be equally divided between "producers" and
"consumers", which, depending on where you make the cut (ISPs and
resellers think of themselves as consumers, not producers) would
guarantee the registries far greater "power".  The ccTLDs are talking 
about getting their own SO.  And you are fretting about the 3 votes the 
gTLD constituency has.

I have my complaints about NSI as well, but it really looks to me like 
people have let their emotions completely destroy their reason.
