We need not even go that far. As I proposed two years ago:


(and the ensuing thread of replies)

one need only create a 2nd list as I mentioned, and give people the choice. 
Some who are within constituencies might opt to stay only on the GA list, or 
even be on both lists. A little competition, so to speak, might work wonders.

Plus, it's high time all the constituencies had public and archived mailing 
lists. To date, the NCUC and BC meet that standard (as does ALAC). The ISP 
constituency might meet that standard, but since no one has posted a single 
time in all of 2009:


I wonder if that constituency is still alive? Their votes should be removed 
from GNSO council due to lack of a membership base, given the non-existent 
participation on their mailing list. The other constituencies only have secret 
and hidden mailing lists, which are inconsistent with ICANN's mission of 
transparency and accountability.
