Support for Consumer Constituency

I wish to express my strong personal support for the Consumer Constituency
as proposed. In my experience, consumer organizations have approached
advocacy from a different perspective -- less theoretical and more
results-driven than that of conventional civil society. As such, I believe
it is important that ICANN empower this community as a discrete ICANN
stakeholder group which may define common priorities, tactics and
partnerships. Moreover, it will bring a much needed perspective directly
within GNSO -- that of Internet end-users who depend upon a well-functioning
domain name-space yet neither buy nor sell domains.

In discussions within the North American Region of ICANN At-Large, I have
observed that our participants have consistently encouraged ALAC's support
of a new consumer constituency. In addition, I offer my own personal and
enthusiastic endorsement. This can't happen soon enough.
