This is why we do not lump the two together.  This thread is just about 
registrants and what can be done.  --- All positive.  This should not dissolve 
into another "us versus them" debate. ICANN has lead Sotiris, Danny and Joop 
down that road about 4 times, good for ICANN staff and bad for registrants.
The two concepts may be exclusive of each other,,,,  they may not be. They may 
be complimentary, they may not be.  But here we must agree to limit the 
discussion and debate to Registrants.
The mechanisms used to organize must not be controlled by one interest. (this 
is why Avri's post comments on the GA using donations was bogus)

1. We (?) could revive a hack-proof online signup procedure and gather again a 
1000 constituents and re-petition the Board to allow its elected 
representatives a seat in the GNSO.  I have shortened my life on this once, let 
someone younger (no pun intended) do it this time.
2. We (here assembled in the GA) could propose and approve a nomination 
procedure and then start nominating candidates according to that procedure.

To answer Eric's question: limit the representation to registrants, because 
they have skin in the DNS and the registrars' contractual obligations-- and 
they are paying the ICANN tax.    "Individuals' representation" is just an easy 
strawman to shoot down.
