  A little work?  I feel that is an understatement.  However the comment
and/orstatement to use JUST membership dues as the ONLY funding mechanism for
the ICANN or the "DNSO" or other SO's is both short sighted and predominantly
unfair to the Stakeholder/user community in general.  As has been outlined several

times on this list there are many other methods for providing for initial and long

term funding that does not put all of the cost directly on the Membership in the
form of dues.  (Please see archives of this list for several of our suggestions).

stated in comments to this very list by myself and some others Membership
Fees can be ONE method of providing for funding executive committee expenses,
but certainly not the ONLY or predominant one.

we have already set up a non revocable perpetual Trust to assist in funding
efforts for the Icann and any of the excepted SO's that may become part of the
