Re: [council] Point for Discussion
Yes, it either needs to come from the board. Or if, as requested,
the board enables the GNSO council to amend some of it own procedures
during the course of their BGCWG recommendations, then we will be
able to do it ourselves.
If the council wishes to proceed on this before getting the final
board decisions on GNSO reform, we could craft a formal request for
the change. It might be best to offer specific language we would
like to see. I can put this on the next meeting's agenda if so

is certainly desirable. At least from my recollection there was no
misuse of that practice.

Glen might be able to provide better insight though.
