First of all, I am in favour of letting the individual (or Corporation
official) vote both in the Constituency (as a member of the Constituency)
*and* the GA (as an individual).

OTOH, your reasonment about organizations having the possibility of asking
somebody else to vote at the GA holds also for individual Domain Name
owners: they can ask a friend, that does not have a Domain Name, but just a
free E-Mail account on HotMail, to vote at the GA.
