As long as we're being stickers for the bylaws, may I also ask why Working
Groups are making any recommendations the ICANN board (which is incomplete,
unelected, interim and unnacountable, by the way)  on issues without
representation of the non-commercial constituency.  Further, the other
constituencies are only provisionally recognized by ICANN until they "amend
their proposals to address deficiencies noted by the Board."

The lack of a fully constituted Name Council with non-commercial
representation and the provisional status of the remaining constituencies
*invalidates* all the recommendations of the working groups.

Why do you press forward before these obvious deficiencies are rectified?
The only consensus these recommendations can pretend to represent is that
of a HANDFUL of self-annointed insiders. The ends don't justify the means.
