There are two primary objections to "Non-contracting parties House"
a) The world outside ICANN
We are often too intro-spective when we discuss ICANN issues.
For me, as someone involved for most of my time in non-ICANN issues I
frequently explain to
senior policy makers and CEOs what ICANN is about.
Using language to describe a group such as "Users" communicates to these people.
"Non-contracting" requires a detailed understanding of ICANN.
As professionals engaged in a political and economic process we do not wish to
be known for
what we are NOT.
We wish to be known for what we are.
