RE: [ga] draft agenda for GA meeting in LA


I agree for all points you stated but I would like to add some missing
points in this agenda:
First: there is no business plan or at least we need to talk about the
funding of the DNSO. As far as I know the DNSO is currently owning money to
the Berkman center for example. 
Who will pay? How the funding will be managed in the future ? Who will
manage the account? Who will be responsible for the account? 
Do we need to establish a membership fee per member or each constituency
will be responsible for a part of the funding and at which level? Is it fair
to have all constituencies to participate the same amount or do we  take
into account the number of members? 
Secondly: The DNSO has been established to handle the Domain Name management
and this agenda doesn't reflect that. I think the recent tentative of
agreement between NSI/ICANN and the DoC and the testbed period must have a
place in this DNSO GA. 

Hope this will help.
