Could I suggest both this poll and the previous one while well
intentioned lead to the GA being more dysfunctional.  Many do not
subscribe here to see 40 people vote on a list.

I know we are basically without a GA Chair for now which doesn't help
but the way I see it is that when polls are needed the GA Chair should
arrange these through the Secretariat.

However in both the recent cases no poll was needed IMO.  It was
obvious there was next to no support for the WLS proposal and as not a
single Registrar is supporting it, it is basically dead in the water.
A good GA Chair would have felt confident concluding the GA does not
support the proposal on the basis of the excellent discussion we have
had here.

Likewise wrt setting up a WG.  The GA Chair should be able to read the
mood of the GA and either set up a GA Working Group or preferably ask
the NC to set up a DNSO Working Group on the issue.

We should reserve votes to when they are really needed, and let the GA
Chair call them.
