I think what he said needs revising:

He obviously meant "the best means of achieving public repression or the exclusion of Internet users in the ICANN process."

With the changes they want, they will need a complete rewrite of the ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION:

3. This Corporation is a nonprofit public benefit corporation and is not organized for the private gain of any person.

[Except the private gain of group of individual persons is okay e.g. Directors of ICANN and Jones, Day, Reavis & Pogue - ICANN's law firm]

4. The Corporation shall operate for the benefit of the Internet community as a whole, carrying out its activities in conformity with relevant principles of international law and applicable international conventions and local law and, to the extent appropriate and consistent with these Articles and its Bylaws, through open and transparent processes that enable competition and open entry in Internet-related markets.

[Except not for benefit of the public in the Internet community. Can ignore the Laws relating to fraud and deception.]
