You presume that the 117 that didn't bother to vote actually had a vote. The
Registrar Constituency is a membership based constituency that only
represents the views and interests of matters as it pertains to the
activities of the DNSO and other ICANN forums.

The document presumes that "natural" legal definitions of both. Further,
these points have been explored by the task force. It remains to be seen
what, if any, consensus the task force has on these points, but it is
neither the documents place, nor ICANN's to redefine pre-existing legal
definitions and roles.

Again, this is not the case for the reasons noted above.

If the task force deems that my actions are premature, then we will deal
with that in the context of the task force. As it stands, your allegations
of inappropriate behavior simply do not wash.
