Re: Re[3]: [ga-ext] Re: [ga] The IC constituency building results so far [was: stuff]

FWIW, I think we need to work on an IDNHC and use whatever we have 
all learned from past efforts.  First of all, what comes first, the chicken 
or the egg?  Will it be a top-down formation where we ask ICANN BoD 
to authorize the constituency first, or form it from THIS LIST, develop a 
charter and then apply?

Personally, I think we should do both.  I think the BoD should authorize 
the constituency so that it can be formed by the members.  Then 
devleop the charter and submit it for approval.

Further, it is obvious that the BoD is going to do everything it can to 
disenfranchise any group that advocates individual partipation including 
the at-large and GA.  It's going to take a lot more than a GA list to 
combat this.

We either come together now and work toward creating something solid 
or we lose to the power that be.  If there is such contentiousness wrt 
IDNO or any other pre-exiting group, then start fresh right now, and as I 
said, use what we have learned from past experience.  Start working on 
a set of guidelines that will be acceptable and workable instead of 
haggling over history.

From my perspective, I will use my "delete" key quite a bit.
