Yes, I agree.  Jefsey's new proposal is muddying the waters and I do not
quite understand why, since he asked me to clarify that my motion would be
specifically for the benefit of Domain Name Holders.

Ken, one of the ways to reach out where you can really help is the one I
just proposed a day earlier: 
let the registrars point to an IC website and signup page on the ICANN site.
Would your Afilias group be willing to contemplate that?

The argument about representativity will only become acute, when the
"constituency" becomes a mouthpiece for interests other that those that
typically concern Individual registrants. (TM lobby, ICANN staff,
registrars, ISP's , IBM, Verisign, some national political grouping, etc.)

You input in how to prevent this, other than by attracting a broad-based
membership would be appreciated.
