I too agree with this point.

I have not noticed any personal resentment from any Board member at any time.
I'm afraid the above "it appears" is based on giving  credence to Mr 
Pacificroot's "done deal" with ICANN staff .

If we want to go "top down" we might as well be consistent and ask for the 
Board or the NC to appoint a GA member as part of the task force.
The GA has been able to elect its own chair. It should be able to elect its 
own delegate to an NC task force.
