...and let's not overlook how Mr. Sola in hit rant managed to neatly avoid
the fact that no working group yet constituted meets ICANN bylaws requiring
one nominated representative from each constituency.

Of course, that'd force him to invalidate the work on WG-A.

But I'm sure it's not a big deal.  Only a couple of people have brought
that bylaw up in the past few days, and ICANN probably didn't even mean 
it when they put that particular bylaw in.  There's probably a "Just 
kidding!" in the fine print somewhere that I missed.
