You seem to have missed the bit where it says that the NC will elect the
chair of the DNSO.

Feel free. You have all the right to demand anything you want from the
ICANN Board, including changes in the consensus DNSO bylaws.
In case you have missed it, the paragraph you just quoted says that the NC
will designate drafting committees, working groups, etc... one more job
that you seem to want to load on your own shoulders.
Please show some respect for the bylaws and the consensus that they
represent. They are the working tool that we have now. It has taken a very
long time to reach this agreement. It is very bad policy to start playing
with them for the benefit of a specific group, you might get the other
groups that have reached consensus on the bylaws very annoyed.
