Re: [gnso-consensus-wg] Nom Comm appointee roles
Several comments. First, it is not clear to me (or from the quotation from Avri/Olga, that NomCom appointees are responsible solely for representing users.
Ignoring that for the moment, "is intended to" is a telling phrase. The old GNSO was expected to have new constituencies pop up. The BGP report say the it will require a lot of work to create such constituencies within the new stakeholders group.
If at the next review, all these new constituencies exist and are alive and well, perhaps it may then be time to re-think the NomCom role.
Spoken by a NomCom appointee who was not active in ICANN, prior to his appointment less than 2 years ago, and who would not likely have been "reached out to" by any constuituency or constituency-seeders.

Lets move this argument away from personalities. For me the logic gap in the concept of nomcom appointees is the following.The new commercial users group is intended to outreach and present a compromise position ofthe diverse views of the globe's commercial users.The new non-commercial users group is intended to outreach and present a compromise positionof the diverse views of the globe's non-commercial users. Just what perspective is left for NomCom delegates?By what logic are three votes more relevant than a process that outreaches and presents acompromise position of the diverse views of the globe's users?
