  Agreed.  In addition some of those ccTLD registries may have a majority
of there registrants as noncommercial registrants as well...

  If you are referring to the registry itself here, than the ccTLD's registries
not having a vote themselves might be reasonable.  However if your
meaning is that NO ccTLD registry can be a member of the noncom
