Quick question;

Where do Registry Operators fit in the "new" GNSO? That is, those that perform 
back end Registry Services for new gTLD  Applicants (or Registries) and 
potentially ccTLD Managers...

Are they able to form a Constituency under the Commercial Stakeholder Group? 
Clearly they are not able to be under the "Contracted" Party House as they have 
no contract with ICANN.

I note from the proposed BC charter;

3.2. Specificity*
In keeping with the selective membership criteria of other GNSO constituencies, 
the Business Constituency represents the interests of a specific sector of 
Internet users. The purpose of the Constituency is to represent the interests 
of businesses using the Internet for, in its broad sense, electronic commerce 
with customers.
To avoid conflicts of interest, this typically excludes for-profit entities 
whose primary relationship with ICANN is as a domain name service provider, 
such as a registry or registrar, as well as from other groups whose interests 
may not be aligned with business users.
