We did the latter for some time now and that is why we lost most of our 
credibility. Even worse: The Board was the first to bypass the NC when 
we've proven to be unable to make a substantial policy recommendation on 
new gTLDs. Today, even the GA and the DNSO constituencies do no longer care 
too much about what we're doing. They're putting their drafts forward to 
the Board immediately instead of waisting their time and ressources with 
another hop over the Council. I understand and respect that this is 
advantageous to at least one single constituency, but I don't have to buy 
in - and this is why I'll certainly not vote in favour of the lastest draft 
we've seen on this list.

If we continue on the line of "in the absence of a clear and (close to) 
unanimous consensus we have to refrain from putting recommendations 
forward" and just point to constituency or GA statements we'll be removed 
from the queue and make ourselves completely superfluous.

So do I. I'm sure, it's our last chance to demonstrate good reasons not to 
dissolve the NC.
