I think we are really getting off track here. We are supposed to be discussing
binding requirements regarding geographic diversity that will be imposed at the
GNSO level. This should be a simple set of requirements that goes into the GNSO
rules. Now this has turned into a general discussion of the characteristics SGs
should look for in their Council representatives. Please, let us not waste any
more time on this at the Council level. If Liz and Philip want to make skills
diversity or sectoral diversity a factor in their SG procedures and bylaws,
they are welcome to do so. If Chuck wants his SG to have sectoral, gender or
racial diversity part of his SG guidelines or policies, then knock yourself
out, Chuck, but do it in the RySG meetings. Robin, Bill and I'll look after
the NCSG, and Alan can do the same for ALAC.
In the meantime, let's settle on the geographic diversity requirement for the
GNSO. It seems we have consensus on the basic elements of the discussion group
proposal. There should be no more than 2 reps from the same region, and
exceptions can be made with a 2/3 vote. Are we done yet?

I would not oppose the use of 'constituency' instead of 'sector' but I
have concerns that 'constituency' very often refers to a specific 'GNSO
Constituency' so it could create some confusion. I do believe though
that 'constituency' is a better term than 'sector'. Would a term like
'interest group' work?
