[wg-review] 3. [Constituencies] Rough Proposal D - Reformulate official constituencies, re-allocate NC positions
What I do propose is (and where hopefully some consensus can form), is
to make a start with balancing voting power on the NC.
The interests of Name Holders need roughly to be balanced with those of the
registration industry,(ISPs, ccTLDs, TLD registries and SLD registrars plus
the IP interests)--currently 15 votes.
The Business constituency (small and big Biz), the NCDNHC and the Individual
DN Holders, could and should have an equal number of votes.
I propose that the current representation of the ISP's, TLD registries,
Registrars and IP lobby together, be reduced to 10 seats.
That Three Name Holder Constituencies (possibly united into a single
constituency) be also given 10 seats on the NC.
The ccTLD's could be given a separate status,one that would not tip the
registry-industry vs. DN holder balance in the DNSO, but give them instead a
separate representation on the Board, reflecting ICANN's need for their
Is this a realistic compromise between completely abandoning the
constituency structure and ending the frustration of always being outvoted
due to lack of representation?
