And really, whose fault is that? The members who submit comments
immediately upon receipt of the draft charters? Or the officers have
been delaying charter reform for months. If it means that the officers
don't get a free trip to wine and dine in Seoul, I can live with that.
If it means we temporarily lose our voting rights in the GNSO, I can
also live with that, given that the IP and ISP constituencies
routinely vote the exact same way we do.

Two BC members have explicitly asked about/demanded that we merge into
the larger constituency (i.e. joining the IP and ISP constituencies
into one superconstituency), and I'd echo their points:


Another member has asked for the "minimally marked up" version of the
charter that ICANN staff provided long ago:


When you "revert to members", don't ignore these questions like you
typically do.
