On (somewhat) related news:
The .at (Austria ccTLD) registry has just chosen a 
co-regulatory approach with a domain council of the 
Internet Privatstiftung Austria (IPA). Its composition:
Someone from the registrars, an Internet users 
association, an association of judges, an ISP, the 
Ministry of Transport, an university college and the
telecommunications regulation authority. The domain
council decides on questions like the registration policy
or a possible dispute resolution policy.

There is a (German) article about this
with a quote by the head of the IPA:
  "Although it is a small association we have decided
  for [the Internet users association] VIBE, because
  they have presented their own opinions on domain
  policy for a long time", explains Haberler. One 
  could possibly ask the question of legitimacy, Haberler
  concedes. "For the time being, it is a jump from zero
  to one, we certainly have to continue the discussion
  about the new structure." [my translation]
VIBE.AT is a member of the Global Internet Liberty
Campaign (gilc.org).
